Both a student and a faculty member received awards at OC METRO’s recent awards dinner honoring Orange County’s top movers and shakers. Named to the magazine’s list of the Hottest 25 People of Orange County was Tilden Smith ’13 and receiving the “Quiet Achiever” award was Hank Adler, assistant professor, Argyros School of Business and Economics.
