Sonnet and Ian McKinnon will receive the Distinguished Service Award. The McKinnons are the lead donors for the new Anderson building, which, once completed, will be known as the McKinnon Center for Management. Preparations are well underway for the new facility and construction is scheduled to begin in early 2017.

The Faculty Community Leadership Award will honor Marketing Professor John Benavidez, who in addition to being a long-time faculty member is also an Anderson graduate.

The theme of this year's Hall of Fame event is Building a Solid Foundation: One Scholarship at a Time. Proceeds from the event go to the Hall of Fame Scholarship Fund that supports Anderson students as they grow into the next generation of business and management leaders.
