Alumni Awards 

The Parkison Department of Accounting selected ten outstanding alumni to honor at the 2020 Accounting Alumni Awards dinner. The COVID-19 pandemic required us to cancel the 2020 dinner, and we planned to honor these alumni at the 2021 dinner. However, the pandemic continued, and forced us to cancel the 2021 event as well. We arranged to present these awards in individual ceremonies in April and May 2021. 

Enjoy some brief videos with comments from each award presentation for 2020-2021 recipients.
