TWU’s Taylor receives national mentorship award from Small Business Institute®


DENTON – As the 2009 recipient of the Homer Saunders Mentor Award from the Small Business Institute®, Texas Woman’s University faculty Sherrie Taylor is being recognized for her work in the training and development of SBI directors and case supervisors.

“Mentoring faculty as they get into the process of directing students in field-based consulting is a reward upon itself, and receiving recognition for this work is truly invigorating,” said Ms. Taylor, a senior lecturer for the TWU School of Management.

Named for a longtime SBI member Homer Saunders, the mentor award honors an SBI member for his or her mentorship of fellow members both in the U.S., as well as other countries. Ms. Taylor was nominated for the award by her national peers.

The SBI provides student consultants, monitored by experienced faculty, to small and emerging businesses across the nation. More than 100 colleges and universities from across the globe participate in the SBI. The TWU chapter handles about 10 cases per year in partnership with the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) organization at the university.

Ms. Taylor has served as director of the Small Business Institute at TWU since 1993.

TWU’s SBI teams regularly place at or near the top in annual national SBI Case of the Year competitions. In 2009 the TWU team placed second in the Specialized Undergraduate Case Study competition for the group’s work with Ruby’s Diner and Safari On The Square in Denton.
