The Texas Business Hall of Fame recently recognized second-year MBA student Dustin Stanton for his performance in the classroom. He was among 20 MBA students from across the state that received the annual scholarship award.

According to MBA Program Director Dr. Dan Robertson, it’s no surprise that Stanton was honored by the Hall of Fame. “Dustin has that rare combination that I wish all our MBA students had,” says Robertson, who nominated Stanton for the award. “He’s incredibly gifted academically, but also has the interpersonal skills and gives back to the MBA program.”

Stanton, who graduated with a bachelor’s in agriculture economics from Oklahoma State, worked at John Deere Company prior to attending the Mays College.
