Class of 2013 Graduate Zachary David Schmoll addresses his fellow classmates

The University of Vermont School of Business Administration said good-bye to over 200 undergraduate and graduate students on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at the Flynn Theater in Burlington.  199 undergraduate and 43 graduate degrees were handed out during the two-hour ceremony.

“The education you received at the School of  Business Administration will help you accomplish great things,” said Dean Sanjay Sharma.  “We encourage you to be ambitious, creative, and compassionate.  Continue to challenge yourself and others.”

Carrie Teffner (’88 BSBA and ’97 MBA), newly appointed Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at PetSmart, Inc., was the keynote speaker during the Commencement Ceremony.  Teffner brings more than 20 years of management experience to PetSmart, most recently serving as the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Weber-Stephen Products, one of the largest global manufacturers of charcoal and gas grills.

Dean Sharma took time in the ceremony to point out three university-wide awards that were given to business school students and faculty.  Ryan Little and Michelle Leung were the 2013 recipients of the Keith M. Miser Leadership Award, which recognizes students who have contributed significantly to campus leadership endeavors. 

The dean also congratulated Assistant Professor Allison Kingsley for being one of four faculty members at the university selected as the 2013 winners of the Kroepsch-Maurice Excellence in Teaching Awards, which recognizes UVM professors for excellent instruction. 

Professor Kingsley was also named the 2013 School of Business Administration Undergraduate Teacher of the Year.  Assistant Professor Glenn Walberg was named the 2013 Master of Accountancy Teacher of the Year and Professor Rocki-Lee DeWitt was named 2013 Master of Business Administration Teacher of the Year Award.
