The San Antonio Business Journal announced the winners of its 2018 Women’s Leadership Awards this month — a list that included Greehey School of Business Dean Tanuja Singh, D.B.A., and four St. Mary’s University alumnae in different fields.
The Business Journal annually recognizes “women who are leaders in their fields and in our community, what many would call agents of positive change.”
One-third of this year’s 15 honorees, who will be recognized at an Aug. 23 luncheon, have ties to St. Mary’s. In addition to Singh, the honorees affiliated with St. Mary’s include:
- Erika Gonzalez-Reyes, M.D. (B.S. ’98), of South Texas Allergy and Asthma Medical Professionals
- Debra Guerrero (B.A. ’88) of the NRP Group LLC
- Catherine Stone (J.D. ’82) of Langley & Banack Inc., former Chief Justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals
- Margaret Vera, J.D. (B.A. ’84), of Law Offices of Margaret M. Vera
“This award is a recognition for the School and the University, which have given me the opportunity to do what I love,” said Singh, who joined St. Mary’s in 2009. “If I can encourage others, especially women, to believe in their talent and work fearlessly toward realizing their potential and passion in their professional and personal lives, I would consider my life well-lived.”
Singh leads about 40 faculty and staff members, led the School’s recent extension of accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), and oversees a significant endowment for the Greehey School of Business where she helped establish the Najim Center for Innovation and Corporate Social Responsibility.
In an article announcing the honorees this week, the Business Journal described the women as caring “about our community’s success as much as their individual professional success, and along the way they mentor and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”
