Inaugural TESU Impact Awards Celebrated

Thomas Edison State University Foundation (TESU) has announced the success of the inaugural TESU Impact Awards, held on Oct. 12. The event took place at Pruitt Hall on the TESU campus.

The TESU Impact Awards event is a celebration of the university’s commitment to education and the impact it has had on the community. After 31 years of hosting the Grand Ball Gala, the event’s primary goal remained unchanged: to provide a special evening of purpose that recognizes outstanding honorees, celebrates TESU’s influence and raises vital funds to support the University’s mission.

This year’s TESU Impact Awards featured three honorees, each of whom has made a significant impact on both the University and the community:

Dr. Ahmed Azmy, president of Azmy Architects and a long-serving TESU Foundation Board member, was recognized for his dedication to the university and his instrumental role in shaping its future.

Frank Clyburn, CEO of IFF and former TESU chair of the Board of Trustees and Foundation Board member, received recognition for his leadership and commitment to advancing the university’s mission.

Jeannine LaRue, senior vice president of the Zita Group, was honored for her impact and contributions to the community and her efforts in supporting TESU’s mission.

The TESU Impact Awards event brought together TESU’s supporters, distinguished honorees and community leaders. The event marked a new chapter in the Foundation’s history, highlighting its commitment to recognizing those who have helped make a lasting impact on education and the community. More than 150 people attended the event, while hundreds more watched the livestream. Approximately $80,000 was raised. This money will be used to support the university’s priority initiatives.
