On August 15, a full field of golfers converged at Transit Valley Country Club for an afternoon of golf and an evening of remembrance in honor of Allen Lee Downing. 

Downing, a student in the MBA program, passed away in 2005 following a tragic motorcycle accident. His passion for learning inspired family and friends to establish a scholarship in his name. 

This scholarship benefits four students each year who mirror Allen's commitment to education and community service. In 2011, those recipients were Erin Driscoll '12, LaShaya Washington '12, Chelsea White '11 and Rocco Zambito '12. 

The event was made possible with generous support from:

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
