2015 HTM Annual Awards Event
“My UMass degree assisted me from day one. It opened doors that I didn’t know existed,” emphasized HTM’s 2015 Stephen Elmont Award recipient Robert F. McCarthy ’78 in his keynote address at Isenberg’s Hospitality & Tourism Management on April 16th. Rob was one three honorees at the event at the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel. The Elmont Award, inspired by the entrepreneurial and industry-transforming accomplishments of the late Stephen Elmont ’64, is the HTM program’s alumnus of the year award. A second accolade, the Distinguished Industry Leader Award, honored James J. Murren, Chairman & CEO of MGM Resorts International. And the Stephen E. Elmont Alumni of the Year Scholarship went to Vimbai Moyo ’16, a junior-year HTM major.
