Every year Troy University gives out a prestigious award called the Malone award.
And this years winner is Dr. Barbara Minsky.
Dr. Minsky has been a part of the troy faculty since 1999.
She’s the associate professor and chair of business programs at troy.
Minsky was very humble when receiving the award, and said it was something she wasn’t expecting.
"It was a total surprise and i am still on cloud nine, and it’s been a couple of weeks already but it’s the highest honor that a faculty member can get at troy and I really didn’t expect to get it." Associate Chair of management and marketing Dr. Barbara Minsky said.
Minsky received a 15-hundred dollar reward a medallion and a trophy.
