Distinguished graduate and champion of the nation’s leading financial services educator, Albert J. “Bud” Schiff, CLU, CAP, has been selected to receive The American College’s highest honor, the Huebner Gold Medal.
The ceremony honoring Schiff will take place during The College’s annual President’s Dinner on Friday, December 2, 2011 at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
“Bud has been an advocate for continuing education and an outstanding industry leader for many years. As a member of our Board of Trustees and the Chair of our Foundation Board of Directors, he has helped us take enormous strides as an evolving institution while staying true to our core values,” Larry Barton, PhD, CAP, president and CEO of The American College, said. “This award is a symbol of the high regard in which Bud is held.”
The Huebner Gold Medal is the highest honor bestowed by The American College and is named for the institution’s founder, Dr. Solomon S. Huebner. The medal has been awarded annually since 1975. It honors the select individuals whose support of the College and whose dedication to education and professionalism have been of particular meaning to the institution. The recipients are recognized annually at the President’s Circle dinner amid The American College’s most dedicated supporters.
The Huebner Award is one of the many accomplishments Schiff has had over the course of his career.
