Hallmark Award

hallmark-award_dr-rusty-brooks2016 Hallmark Award – Dr. Rusty Brooks

This year’s recipient is Dr. Rusty Brooks. While serving as a faculty member and interim dean at HBU, Dr. Brooks has had the opportunity to instruct and impact many students and alumni. Dr. Brooks’s teaching focus is on achieving “real-life” experiences and challenges in the classroom, and he is known for spending hours outside of the classroom counseling and mentoring students and alumni in their career paths. While at HBU, Dr. Brooks has served as the chair of the Athletic Affairs Committee, is the immediate past-president of the Society for Marketing Advances, and currently holds the Prince-Chavanne Professorship in Christian Business Ethics. He is also a two-time recipient of the Robert Griswold Outstanding Teaching Award in the School of Business. While at HBU, Dr. Brooks has been an incredible resource to students and alumni alike. “He always had his door open for students and was never shy about sharing his wisdom,” says alumna Susy Perez ’16. “During classes, he took it outside of the classroom by providing real world problems and solutions… He’s the best professor I had at HBU by far.” You can often find Dr. Brooks at an alumni tailgate or supporting his students at their athletic events. Dr. Brooks currently serves as the associate dean of undergraduate programs in the Archie W. Dunham College of Business as well as the program coordinator for marketing. Dr. Brooks’ relentless dedication and support to his current and former students is what helps make him a deserving recipient for the Hallmark Award.
