Ian Hopkins

Mr. Ian Hopkins has been named the 2014 Distinguished Senior for EKU's Department of Management, Marketing and International Business. He was honored during a presentation on Friday, April 4, 2014, at the School of Business College to Careers Conference.

The student is selected based on superior academic achievement, excellent leadership, citizenship, character and services to EKU.

Ian, photographed above, was presenting at the National Honors Conference on April 4th.

Ian, from Frankfort, Kentucky, has been invited into membership of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. He will be graduating in May with a Bachelor’s degree in Management.

Ian has had a stellar academic career at EKU!  He is a Management major, Honor’s Program student, Patterson Scholar, exchange student in Valencia, Spain, through the Magellan program, and was selected to present his research at the 2014 National Conference for Undergraduate Research.

As a Patterson Scholar, Ian led MMIB recruitment activities, spoke before hundreds of FBLA high school visitors, and was a discussant at the School of Business Student Organization Rally.

Following his Magellan Exchange international experience where he attended the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain, he visited business classrooms to engage students in conversation that would answer their questions and encourage them to study abroad.

No stranger to travel and involvement, Ian has participated in Honors Council National and Regional conferences. His proposal was accepted to Posters-at-the-Capitol as well as the National Conference of Undergraduate Research.

To fill up those summer months, Ian has worked with the Frankfort YMCA and Theatre Arts Day Academy as a camp counselor.

He is a member of Phi Beta Lambda, Golden Key International Honor Society, Alpha Lambda Delta, and the Society for the Advancement of Management.

Please join me in congratulating Ian Hopkins on being selected as the 2014 distinguished senior representing the Department of Management, Marketing and International Business. We will present Ian’s certificate to him when he returns from the National Honors Conference.

At the luncheon, the college honored distinguished seniors and distinguished alumni from each of the academic departments within the College of Business and Technology. Ms. Diane French Nguyen was selected as the MMIB departmental distinguished alum. In addition, recipients of scholarships and awards for the 2013-14 academic year were recognized and honored for outstanding achievement.
