I’m thrilled to receive the 2011-2012 Jack Larson Scholarship for Entrepreneurs! Here I am standing next to Mr. Larson with the other recipients at the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship‘s Annual Award Dinner.
A little about Mr. Larson:
In 1994, Mr. Larson founded Career Education Corporation, currently one of the largest for-profit education companies in the United States. Under his leadership, the company’s annual revenues surpassed $2 billion in less than 12 years, and achieved a compound annual growth rate of 44 percent in the last five years. Mr. Larson has recently been named as one of the first inductees to the Hall of Fame at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
