Selection into the Wall of

involvement and sustained support to the vitality of RIT. In addition
to the six inductees, Russell Schwartzbeck 97 was honored
for his achievements as a recent graduate. Schwartzbeck earned a bachelors
degree in finance and now works for Northwestern Mutual Financial Network
as a financial representative.
We want visitors to
the College of Business to know that our alumni are out there leading
the way in the business world, says Jennifer Reginelli 02,
who was class gift co-chair. We also want to encourage current
students by providing them with role models that aspire high ideals.
Someday, they too can be on that wall of fame.
