Schools of Business faculty were honored for outstanding achievements during the annual Faculty Awards Recognition Ceremony held April 27 at the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Gardens in Kernersville.
Vice Dean Charles Iacovou welcomed attendees saying, “You are a very dedicated team of faculty members. Our students are fortunate to have people like you helping them become the best they can be.”
Iacovou began the program by announcing the awarding of tenure to faculty members Kenny Herbst and Sean Hannah.

Hannah is a leadership scholar and retired U.S. Army colonel. He was formerly the director of the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic (CAPE) at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Hannah will serve as a professor of management and the J. Tylee Wilson Chair in Business Ethics at Wake Forest Schools of Business.
Marketing professor Sheri Bridges announced the establishment of the Bob Fly Business and Enterprise Management Marketing Scholarship. Bob Fly is a veteran advertising executive and has served as a marketing instructor at Wake Forest for 29 years.
Colleagues took time to celebrate the contributions of one of the longest serving faculty members of Wake Forest Schools of Business, Dr. Arun Dewasthali. Deswasthali, who was described as “universally loved and adored by alumni,” is retiring after 37 years of service to the University.
