Dr. Frank Messina Awarded UAB Honorary Alumnus

Dr. Frank Messina

Each year the Board of Directors of the UAB National Alumni Society presents its Honorary Alumnus Award to a faculty member who has made exceptional contributions to the University and its programs.  The Board has unanimously selected Dr. Frank Messina as the 2009 recipient of this award.   He joins two others from the School of Business – Dr. Gene Newport and Dr. Jack Duncan – who were named honorary alumni in the past.

In recognizing Frank’s work as Chair of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems and as UAB’s NCAA Faculty Athletics Representative, the Alumni Society president praised Frank’s “commitment to the mission and vision of UAB and the exemplary work that he does each day.”    The Society will recognize Frank at its Annual Alumni Awards Luncheon to be held at The Club on September 24.
