|Business school donates to Boys and Girls Club
More than 200 Sonoma State University students, faculty, staff and local community members attended the third annual 5K Tour de Campus on Oct. 1. The event, hosted by SSU’s School of Business and Economics, raised more than $4,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Central Sonoma County. The three-mile race around SSU’s campus was followed by live music from Hip Hug Her and a ceremony honoring participants for various awards.
Kyle Steinfelt, an active member of SSU’s Accounting Forum, came dressed in full business attire and was eager to outrun the dean of the School of Business and Economics. Steinfelt not only beat Dean Silver, but was also the first to cross the finish line and receive the award for fastest race time.
“The Dean’s challenge really motivated me to win the race. Beating him was very satisfying,” said Steinfelt.
The final award, the 2011 Students’ Choice Award, was given to Joe Standridge, a business professor and advisor for the School’s Accounting Forum. The students recognized Standridge for his dedication to providing high standards of scholarship, commitment to advising, and outstanding service to all students.
