Huntsman Post - May 2016

Spring is in full bloom in Cache Valley, and the green valley, with snow still visible on the mountains, make the home of Utah State University hard to beat.

This month we bring you news of our commencement, where we graduated 830 business students during USU's 129th graduation ceremony. We were honored to have Gail Miller, owner of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, as our graduation speaker.

The end of the academic year also brought several notable awards and achievements for our students, faculty, and staff, including the selection of Huntsman student Madelyn Fife as a Truman Scholar, and the awarding of the Bill E. Robins Memorial Award, USU’s top student award, to accounting student Casey Major. Also, for the second time in three years, students from our Master of Science in Financial Economics program beat all comers in the Zions Bank Fixed Income Portfolio competition.

We are proud of all of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends who continue to dare mighty things, who challenge themselves and each other, and who continue to make a difference in their communities and the world.
