Michelle Maher of Dallas Center has been recognized as an Outstanding Business Administration Student by the faculty at AIB College of Business.

To receive the honor, Maher– who is earning an Associate in Applied Science degree in Travel and Hospitality Management– and the other honorees were required to attain a grade point average of 3.75 or higher in the previous term. The students’ accomplishments were celebrated at a reception on campus attended by AIB faculty, staff and students.

At the reception, Jeff Koudelka, president of Iowa Plains Siding Inc. and a graduate of AIB, shared his personal formula for success: treating customer and employees with respect, working hard, working smart and finding a mentor. Most importantly, he told the students, once you make a decision, follow through and do it right.
