In the video tribute to Anne Shumadine, J.D. ’83 the 2017 recipient of The T.C. and Elizabeth Clarke Medallion, Randy Webb MBA ’07, president and CEO of Signature Family Wealth Advisors says, “Anne has spent her life exemplifying the virtues of the Clarke Medallion.”
Shumadine was awarded the Clarke Medallion on March 28, 2017. The Clarke Medallion is the Raymond A. Mason School of Business’ highest honor and is awarded by the business school faculty to an individual whose distinguished career and contributions to business management represent the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.
Dean Larry Pulley remarked, “The Medallion and the Mason School have the same core principles. It is hard to imagine a recognition that is more inextricably intertwined with the granting body. Anne Shumadine has, throughout her entire career, distinguished herself by principled achievement at the highest levels.”
