Retail stars shined during "A Salute to Retail," the Fourth Merchandising Star Awards luncheon, held November 16 at River Oaks Country Club. The event was attended by more than 300 retail industry professionals, local philanthropists, and faculty, staff and students of the college's Retailing and Consumer Sciences program.
Preliminary results project this year's luncheon to have been the most successful to date in raising funds for the Merchandising Star Endowment, which provides program and student scholarship support to the retailing program in the Department of Human Development and Consumer Sciences.
