Three graduates of the University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business and Economics will be inducted Thursday into the college's Alumni Hall of Fame.
"These three outstanding graduates are most deserving of this recognition," Merl Hackbart, interim dean of the college, said in a statement. "The inductees represent several different professions and career paths, yet all have distinguished themselves in their business pursuits and in civic and community leadership."
In total, the hall of fame has 75 members since its inception in 1994.
The college also will honor professor Donald Mullineaux with the 2012 Kenneth N. Robertson Faculty Leadership Research Award. Mullineaux has taught at the university since 1984 and before that worked for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
