Congratulations to Dr. Jason White
By Dan Danford
Sometimes we need to take a moment to just appreciate the folks around us. I want to take a moment here, publicly, to thank Dr. Jason White for his guidance, particularly during this past year. Jason is our director of investments and he was recently recognized by his hometown, Raytown, and inducted into the Raytown Alumni Hall of Fame. What a terrific, well-deserved honor. Here's the full article.
Jason White inducted into Raytown Alumni Hall of Fame
Dr. Jason White, Director of Investments at Family Investment Center, is one of the newest members of the Raytown Alumni Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Hall on November 1 as one of only five other inductees and was honored for his accomplishments in the fields of investment management and economics research. White, the youngest ever Raytown High School inductee, was recognized as a dedicated teacher and community member, successful entrepreneur, portfolio manager, and financial consultant.
"Jason has made really strong contributions to the university, to our firm and to the community as a whole," said Dan Danford, Principal and CEO of Family Investment Center. "He absolutely deserves this honor and we're so pleased to see him recognized for his hard work, particularly at such a young age."
The Alumni Hall of Fame is a program that pays tribute to alumni who have achieved a certain level of distinction in their lives and careers and also celebrates the rich heritage of education in the Raytown community. The school district's nominating committee selects individuals of noteworthy success in areas such as business, visual or performing arts, community service, academics, athletics, or military service.
White has received numerous other awards, including the NWMSU Alumni Association Distinguished Faculty Award, Sam Walton Free Enterprise Fellow, Mortar Board Teaching Excellence Award, and the Melvin and Valerie Booth College of Business Dean's Teaching Excellence Award.
