MU honors business leaders Apr. 27, 2015 @ 10:01 PM By LACIE PIERSON HUNTINGTON – A celebration on Marshall University’s campus got down to business in a big way Monday night. The induction ceremony for the 2015 Class of the Marshall University College of Business Hall of Fame brought about 250 campus, community and business leaders from throughout the country to Marshall’s Foundation Hall.

This is a celebration of those folks.” Read more
