Outstanding Marketing Professionals
This honor is presented to a marketing practitioner whose career has promoted ethical and professional practices. In addition, the recipient’s name is given to the scholarship(s) presented to the Outstanding Marketing Students.
In December 1990, AMA Knoxville created The Eagle Endowment for Marketing Education as a means to build a permanent fund from which half the income would be distributed annually, and the other half reinvested, to provide scholarships for outstanding marketing students at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
