Feb 23, 2005 — Sy Syms School of Business student Lauren Stricker is a finalist in a business competition sponsored by St. John’s University. Lauren submitted an essay that finished in the top three of all submissions. A panel will decide by next week if Lauren is ultimately chosen for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. For simply placing in the top three, Lauren is eligible to present her work at the First Annual St. John’s University Investment Management Conference to take place at St. John’s Manhattan campus on March 11.
Syms Dean Charles Snow, PhD, said Lauren’s achievement reflects positively on the students, faculty, and curriculum of Sy Syms School of Business. It is only the latest recognition for the school, which recently saw one of its professors, Debra Cohn, receive a teaching award from the Direct Marketing Day Foundation.
