2018 Charles R. Higgins Distinguished Alumnus

Jim Beeman -  Vice President & General Manager at NIKE

 

Jim Beeman

 

I am humbled and honored by this recognition, and maybe just a little bit overwhelmed. To even be considered among our highly successful alumni base is rare air. As a member of the alumni board, I’ve been fortunate to have a front row seat to the growth and progress of the program over the last 20 years, and I am grateful to have had even a small part in its continued success. From the first time I set foot on campus with my classmates to the many students and alumni I’ve had the chance to connect with over the years, the journey has been a true privilege.
