Each year, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Goizueta gather for the Alumni Awards to honor those who have truly distinguished themselves in their careers and through their service to the school and the world. This year, the Distinguished Achievement Award went to Lado Gurgenidze 93MBA, executive chairman of Liberty Bank and former Prime Minister of Georgia; the Alumni Service Award to Jeff Q. Booth 84BBA 94MBA, principal at Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP; and the Alumni Entrepreneur Award to Peter Corbett 03BBA, CEO of iStrategyLabs. Though he could not attend in person, Gurgenidze sent his warm thanks via video: “I owe this school a huge sense of gratitude, and if my modest success helps convince young men and women that these things are possible with a quality education like Goizueta gives, that would make me very happy and proud.”—Breckyn Wood
