Recently Tom Methvin, who is our Managing Principal in the firm, was appointed as the Commerce Executives Society President for the Montgomery chapter of the University of Alabama Culverhouse College of Commerce. The Commerce Executives Society (CES), the Annual Fund for the College, plays an important role in the continuation of the highly regarded school.
The Culverhouse College of Commerce is the oldest business school in Alabama. Its mission is to provide students with an education they can use in the business environment of tomorrow. It has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top three to four percent of public business programs nationally, and Forbes has ranked the college’s Manderson Graduate School of Business at No. 31 among the top public MBA programs. The Culverhouse program combines a traditional classroom experience with hands-on opportunities for education and professional development by teaming with local and national companies.
CES provides additional dollars to ensure every Culverhouse student receives a superior education by providing the resources and experiences that separate its students from the competition. As of 2014, there were 190 Culverhouse scholarship funds used to award 658 Culverhouse student scholarships totaling $1,657,490. Some 154 of those scholarships went to graduate students. Gifts to CES can be used immediately to help bridge the gap and move integral programs forward.
There will be a CES event in October, so if you are already on the mailing list for the organization, watch for your invitation. If you are a Culverhouse alumnus in the Montgomery area and would like to become more involved with alumni programs including the Commerce Executives Society, contact Courtney Page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
