The Dr. Quiester Craig Fellowship Award from Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society was awarded to CW student,
Garwayne McGregor. Out of the 475 chapters worldwide, The Sigma Beta Delta (SBD) Fellowship Program awarded thirty fellowships to qualifying members in 2018.
“I am so honored to have been chosen to receive this fellowship award. It has motivated me now more than ever to continue my education and to stay on my path to success,” said Garwayne, who is a recent graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. “The award has reaffirmed my beliefs that one should never allow their failures to command the outcome of their future, failures should be used only as benchmarks on which you build your success.”
The Dr. Quiester Craig Fellowship Award is named after Dr. Craig who retired in 2013 as one of the longest serving business school deans in the country after a successful career at North Carolina AT&T State University. He was appointed to the school as Dean and Professor of Accounting in 1972. During his tenure, the undergraduate program earned accreditation in the Association to Advance College Schools of Business (AACSB). He would later serve as the AACSB’s only African American president. The AACSB honored Dr. Craig in 2013 with the Distinguished Leadership Award.
