USA - The University of Tennessee System honoured Bandit Lies founder and president Michael T. Strickland with The Presidents Council Service Award on 31 January. The President’s Council Awards Dinner was held at the Discovery Park of America in Union City, Tennessee and was attended by several hundred Tennessee alumni from across the country. The UT System is comprised of multiple campuses and locations across the great state of Tennessee.
Strickland was recognised for a lifetime of service and dedication to the entire University of Tennessee System.
“Without the higher education I was afforded in my time at UTK, I would never have been able to achieve at the level that I did,” he says. “It is my mission to enlighten other people, create engagement and involvement with the school, and enable as many other people as possible to have the same education and opportunity that I did. I am truly blessed.”
This recognition comes on the heels of the entertainment industry giving Strickland the Parnelli Lifetime Visionary Award for his distinguished career in the business. Strickland, a pioneer of entertainment lighting, was feted on 17 January in Anaheim, California in front of 800 entertainment executives.
“I am truly humbled and honoured that The University of Tennessee System has recognized me in this way,” concludes Strickland. “It is an honour I will always cherish.”
