Winthrop University, College of Business Administration, will host the 2013 Pinnacle Leadership Awards on Tuesday, February 5, 2013. The event will take place on Winthrop’s campus in the Richardson Ballroom located inside the DiGiorgio Campus Center and will begin with a reception at 6:00 p.m.
The Pinnacle Leadership Society, established in 1995, recognizes inspirational leadership, and celebrates those individuals who through vision, determination, management skills, and perseverance have shaped the world in which they have operated. The recognition of community leaders reflects the cumulative work of inductees over a lifetime dedicated to strengthening the fabric of both business and society.
The College of Business Administration will honor three alumni with the Distinguished Alumni Award and Winthrop's President, Tony DiGiorgio with the Tower Award at the event for their contributions to the university, the community, and to business leadership. These individuals, Mark Carter ’06, John Little, M.D. ’02, and Steve McCormick ’ 83 will be receiving the Distinguished Alumni Award and are recognized for their efforts in advancing the principles of the free market system with dignity, are recognized for their accomplishments, and whose careers are marked by high ethical standards.
The Tower Award recognizes a lifetime of achievements in business leadership. This award symbolically refers to the Tillman Tower, the highest point on Winthrop’s campus. It recognizes an individual whose accomplishments transcend that which is perceived to be significant, and has reached the summit of his/her life’s achievements. This individual has inspired the community, provided leadership, and instilled a positive influence on the ethical fabric of society. This year’s recipient of the Tower Award will be Winthrop University’s President, Dr. Anthony DiGiorgio.
