Nine Buena Vista University business majors have been selected for the Clifford A. Rae Academic Achievement Award for the 2012 calendar year. The awards — which range up to $5,000 — were created by a $750,000 endowment from the foundations established by Dr. Harold Walter Siebens and named after the long-time advisor and counsel to Siebens and the foundations.
