ROCK HILL, S.C. – The College of Business Administration will host the 2013 Pinnacle Leadership Awards on Feb. 5 to honor three alumni and outgoing President Anthony DiGiorgio.

The event will begin with a 6 p.m. reception in the Richardson Ballroom in the DiGiorgio Campus Center.

The Pinnacle Leadership Society, established in 1995, 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.

Mark Carter ’06 of Charlotte, N.C., John Little, M.D. ’02 of Fort Mill, S.C., and Steve McCormick ’83 of Louisville, Ky., will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award for their efforts to advance the principles of the free market system with dignity.

They were selected because of their accomplishments and for careers marked by high ethical standards.

The Tower Award, which recognizes a lifetime of achievements in business leadership, symbolically refers to the Tillman Tower, the highest point on Winthrop’s campus.

It is given to an individual whose accomplishments transcend that which is perceived to be significant, and has reached the summit of his/her life’s achievements.

This year’s recipient of the Tower Award will be Winthrop President Anthony DiGiorgio, who will retire this summer after 24 years at the helm of the university.
