 Jody Sauls 



 Matt Paciocco, chair of the Awards Committee, presents Jody Sauls the 2012 Rising Star Alumni Award.

Congratulations to Jody Sauls, the 2012 Rising Star Alumni Award recipient.  Jody graduated in 2008, earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree with a concentration in management.  After completing a successful internship with Target, Jody was offered a position with that retail giant.  He quickly moved up the corporate ladder and now manages the largest Target store in the Richmond, Va. area.  In addition to his career success, you will often see Jody on the Longwood campus.  He works actively with Longwood students, participating in CBE internship seminars and recruiting for Target during Longwood career fairs.  He recently sat on a young alumni panel to discuss the challenges and opportunities of being a college a student with CBE freshmen.

We are extremely proud of all of our CBE Alumni.  If you know of a deserving alumnus for next year’s awards, please contact one of your Alumni Advisory Board members.
