The United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) selected Alex McKelvie, professor of entrepreneurship, as a Justin G.

According to USASBE, the fellowship is “the highest recognition it gives to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the development, furtherance and benefit of small and medium businesses.”

The USASBE Fellows Award is given to those “whose passion and burning desire for small business and entrepreneurship is reflected in their teaching, writing, research, training and public service,” according to the USASBE website. There are 84 distinguished educators, researchers, government officials, small business advocates and trade association leaders on the list, which was established in 1986.
