School of Management Congratulates Award Recipients

June 02, 2017

Megan McGrath, '17SM and April Evans '91SM are presented with awards at May 2017 School of Management graduation ceremony

We're congratulating Megan McGrath '17SM, recipient of the Pat Miller Award and April E. Evans '91SM, recipient of the Phyllis J. Rappaport Award.

The Pat Miller Award is awarded annually by his or her classmates to the student who demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and, by doing so, made a difference in their lives. Megan was also selected by her peers to be the MSM student speaker. Her speech was very inspiring and thoughtful as she articulately described how her time in the Simmons MSM program impacted her personal and professional life.

The Phyllis J. Rappaport Award was established through a gift from Jerome Lyle Rappaport to honor his wife, Phyllis, a member of the first Simmons SOM graduating class and it recognizes significant deeds and accomplishments that have helped further the School's tradition of creating broader opportunities for women. April happily accepted this award and spoke with strong authenticity about the education she received at the SOM and its impact on her successful career and life choices.
