Fogelman's Department of Management Information Systems hosted 573 high school students
from Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools Feb. 17 for a daylong business
The students, members of Future Business Leaders of America, participated in events
in public speaking, interview skills, web design, spreadsheets, database applications
and project management. Students who came in tops in the competitions were recognized
at an awards banquet at the Holiday Inn-University of Memphis Feb. 21. Fogelman Dean
Rajiv Grover spoke to students at the ceremony.
"This activity provided the department with an opportunity to acquaint the high school
students with the campus and will hopefully encourage many of them to consider the
Fogelman College while making choices for a major after graduation from high school,"
said Dr. Lloyd Brooks, professor and chair of the Department of Management Information
