Business Society Recognizes Student Achievement

Crandall Business AwardsMoncton’s Royal Oaks Golf Club played host Wednesday evening to the Crandall University Business Society’s annual awards banquet recognizing excellence in business student achievement.  Several students took turns at the podium reflecting on their experiences studying business at Crandall and articulating their aspirations for the future.

Academic achievement awards were presented to students Jasmine Wong of Charlottetown, Chantel Lewis of Riverview, and James Albinet of Moncton.

Graduating student Brittany O’Toole of Miramichi received the Peter Humby Award of Business Excellence.  Honouring retired business professor Peter Humby, the award recognizes the business student who, in the eyes of his or her peers, has contributed the most to the Crandall University Business Society and the student body over the course of the past year.  During her studies Brittany served on the Business Society Executive as its president and as a co-ordinator of the university’s business case competition.  The management student will be working in the tourism sector upon graduation.  “I feel very honoured to receive the Peter Humby award, as it is a recognition from my peers of leadership and dedication to the Business Society,” she said.  “It is very rewarding to end my final year with the Society on such a positive note.”

The Juanita McKnight Memorial Award was presented to Jeff Bandy of Moncton.  Established in memory of late Business Society President Juanita McKnight, the award recognizes the attributes of passion, outspokenness, empathy, and motivation within the University and the community.  Jeff, who will be graduating with a concentration in accounting, is considering a continuation of his training via the completion of a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.  “As someone who places a high value on integrity, receiving this award is a real honour,” he said.  “While it is bittersweet to see this season of my life ending, I know a new one is on the horizon.  I will always remember my years at Crandall as some of the greatest.”

“I look forward to this event every year,” said Robert MacDonald, Stephen S. Steeves Professor in Business at Crandall.  “It’s a real celebration of excellence, and I’m very proud of all our award winners.  They are hard-working, exemplary young people who are going to positively impact their world.”

The Crandall University Faculty of Business Administration offers concentrations in Accounting, Economics and Finance, Management, Marketing, and General Business Administration.  The Faculty’s motto “Excellence. Integrated.” speaks to its goal of being a leader in the integration of business and the Christian faith.
