To honor those who have fueled our first 100 years, Temple University’s Fox School of Business has announced an A-Z list of honorees—entrepreneurs, visionaries, and disruptors—who helped shape the school and the business world since 1918.
The list includes some of the best minds to graduate from or become friends of the Fox School over the last century, such as a feared litigator; a female Air Force Reserve lieutenant colonel in World II; a Grammy award-winning producer, writer and musician; and a business executive for Nike. It also includes the inspirational stories of immigrants; candidates for political office; benefactors of education, healthcare and the arts; and many more.
“The Centennial Honorees succeeded over the past century because they were persistent and because they were innovators at heart,” said Ronald Anderson, interim dean, Fox School of Business. “Many of their stories contain consistent themes—including originality, service, and generosity. All of these people have impacted the Fox School in uniquely profound ways—through their involvement, commitment, and a strong belief in innovation.”
Meet the Centennial Honorees, get to know their inspirational stories and read their words of wisdom.
