AIU Distinguished Alumni Award winner Rolanda WhiteRolanda White was awarded the 2015 Distinguished Alumni Award. Rolanda graduated from our M.B.A. program, specializing in Accounting. She is a single mother of 7 children, whose academic journey and academic path with AIU began after suffering the loss her 12 year old son to suicide and shortly thereafter, her husband through divorce. For our recipient, these personal tragedies only served to motivate her as she states to “re-invent” herself.

Rolanda volunteers at both her church and the schools of her children and is working towards becoming a children’s advocate for children who do not have a voice. Her overarching goal is to give back through helping others, and she is currently working on starting a non-profit in honor of her son to implement change in her local county school system.
