Randall and Katharine Hansen Celebrate QuintCareers.com 6th Anniversary with Gifts to Stetson University
DeLand, FL -‘ Dr. Randall Hansen, Stetson University associate professor of marketing, and his wife, Katharine, who has also taught at Stetson, have established a $750 purchase award for student artwork. The first-ever winner of the award is senior art major Shaun Preston for his work, “Treating My Obsession.”
Called the Quintessential Art of Business Purchase Award, after their Web business, Quintessential Careers, it is one of the show’s top awards. The winning artwork will become part of the university’s permanent collection, and will be displayed in the newly renovated Lynn Business Center. “We wanted to give back to the university,” said Katharine Hansen, creative director of Quintessential Careers. “This award enables us to celebrate Quintessential Careers’ Stetson roots in two ways -‘ by providing the newly revamped Lynn Business Center with culturally enriching artwork and by supporting Stetson’s art students through purchasing their work for permanent display in the Lynn Center.”
Dr. Paul Dascher, Dean of the School of Business Administration, was on hand to accept the artwork for the Lynn Business Center, to congratulate the winning artist, and to join the Hansens in the Quintessential Careers anniversary celebrations.
The Hansens founded Quintessential Careers six years ago. (Read more.) They are marking its anniversary with several special events, which began with the gift of their popular book, Write Your Way to a Higher GPA, to all of Stetson’s first-year business students. (Read more.)
The events will culminate in a Dec. 4 panel of Stetson graduates who will serve as a “Real World Panel” to advise current students about job hunting and life after graduation. A career networking event will follow the pannel discussion. (Read more about the event.)
