Irrigon man earns outstanding management award


CORVALLIS - An Oregon State University graduate from Irrigon has earned recognition as the Outstanding Management Student 2002 from the university's College of Business.

Roberto Garcilazo, who received his bachelor's of art degree in business administration this month (June), was honored based on faculty recommendations that praised his academic skills as well as campus and community leadership activities.

During his time at OSU, Garcilazo's academic skills earned him recognition on the university's scholastic honor roll. He also carried out a research project that analyzed traffic speed on Oregon roadways and developed recommendations to modify laws to match what the majority of Oregon's motorists consider safe and acceptable.

The management option in OSU's College of Business helps prepare students for careers as managers and supervisors in goods-producing and service enterprises. Studies focus on management systems, personnel and quality. Students completing the option often pursue careers in law, urban and regional planning, public services administration and health care administration.
