Baton Rouge - The LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business inducted Marcela Donadio, Robert Schneckenburger and Jeff Zehnder into its Hall of Distinction at a banquet held Business Education Complex on Friday, March 22.

“LSU played an incredible part in who I am today,” said 2019 inductee, Marcela Donadio.  “With respect to providing an incredible foundation for my undergraduate education, what I found here, more importantly, were people who actually cared about me.  None of the opportunities I’ve had would have been possible without my foundation at LSU.”

“This is a truly humbling honor for me,” said fellow inductee, Robert Schneckenburger. “Coming to LSU was the best move I have ever made.  I can’t thank the state of Louisiana enough for what they did for me in providing me with my education and I hope, in some way, I have paid it back.  I could not be prouder to be an LSU Tiger.”

“I am a great example of someone who has benefitted from a lot of help,” said Hall of Distinction inducted, Jeff Zehnder. “LSU is responsible for pushing me out of the shell I came with.  I feel incredibly fortunate that I can credit LSU with that and for making me the leader I hope I am today.”
