Graham Lewis Brown was presented with the Wall Street Journal award for 2010 at the annual Falls School of Business banquet Wednesday, April 14. Brown, a graduate from Norwell High School and a graduating management senior with a 4.0 GPA, has been actively involved in FSB activities over the past four years.
A native of Ossian, Ind., Brown has served as Executive Director of the Anderson Media Group (AMG), and represented Anderson University in the I-69 Collegiate Challenge. He was a counselor for the inaugural Entrepreneurship Camp for area high school students, and serves as the director of both camps being offered in the summer of 2010. He is, however, most known by many of his fellow students as the co founder of The Flop, a pancake restaurant off-campus that was opened last spring.

The Wall Street Journal award is presented each year to an outstanding senior and is the highest honor an FSB student can receive. Graham’s name will be engraved on a plaque in Hardacre Hall with past winners and also included in a full-page article in The Wall Street Journal highlighting students who have received the award across the country. In addition to this, each year’s winner is also presented with the Larry and Dorothy Morrison Thomas Award, which includes a $5,000 cash award to the selected student. Dorothy Morrison Thomas is the daughter of Dr. John A. Morrison, who served as the president of Anderson University from 1923-1958.
Also recognized at the banquet were outstanding students in the departments of accounting, finance, global business, management, and marketing. Several students and two professors were also inducted into Anderson University’s chapter of the Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society for Business.
