Meagan Attanasio, a senior business and organization management major and accounting minor at Maryville College, has been accepted into the University of Tennessee College of Law. She will complete requirements for her bachelor’s degree in May 2013 and plans to begin her studies at law school in the fall.
While at Maryville College, Attanasio has been involved with the equestrian team. She has been advised by Dr. Jenifer Greene, associate professor of management, and completed an independent Senior Study under the guidance of Ms. Rebecca Treadway, associate professor of management.
One of the distinctive features of a Maryville education, the Senior Study requirement calls for students to complete a two-semester research and writing project that is guided by a faculty supervisor.
Attanasio’s completed study is titled, “A Study of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.” Treadway said that Attanasio explored and documented the history of the company and its external and internal environment, describing corporate social responsibility, leadership roles, patents and operations. She is currently preparing a financial analysis of the company through analyzing the application of different management theories.
“I am delighted that Meagan has been accepted into law school,” the professor said. “She is an intelligent, kind-hearted person who knows what she wants to do with her talents. She is a bright light, always striving to be better and help others in any way she can.”
