MTSU alumna Angie Grissom (Class of 2000) is among the 2019 recipients of a top national achievement award presented by the Beta Gamma Sigma international business honor society.
Grissom, who earned her bachelor of business administration with an emphasis in marketing from the Jennings A. Jones College of Business, received one of three Beta Gamma Sigma Business Achievement Awards after being nominated by the Middle Tennessee State University chapter of the honor society.
Grissom is president of Nashville-based The Rainmaker Companies, a training, consulting and alliances firm serving accounting and legal industries. Grissom’s role involves high-level strategy, thought leadership, consulting, program and curriculum development, and employee direction.
In his nomination letter, David Foote, associate dean of the Jones College of Business, noted that Grissom "lives out and promotes the values embraced by Beta Gamma Sigma Society, serving as role model and positive pathfinder on a global scale through her business and professional endeavors."
In 2018, Grissom was presented the Jones College of Business Exemplar Award, recognizing a Blue Raider alumnus who has “walked in the shoes” of current students and whose personal and professional accomplishments demonstrate that future MTSU graduates can also achieve great things.
