Adams, Loftus honored as Southern Miss College of Business Alumni of Year | People
Retired businessman Spencer Adams and budding entrepreneur Jared Loftus were honored as 2012 Alumni of the Year by The University of Southern Mississippi’s College of Business during a luncheon on Friday, Nov. 2 at Southern Oaks in Hattiesburg.
Adams, former president and CEO of Pickett & Adams Insurance, received the Boardman Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award. Loftus, president and CEO of online apparel store College District, was presented the Outstanding Young Alumnus of the Year Award.
“I think, as you get older, you appreciate these kinds of honors a little more,” said Adams, who founded his insurance company in 1974 and retired in 2011. “While I can’t say that I was the model student during my time at Southern Miss, I will say that I have never once apologized for the education I received there. I would put it up against anyone else’s anytime.”
