Description

Mary Schmid Daugherty takes textbook knowledge and brings it to life, bridging academia and business. She has guided hundreds of students through the complex realm of investing, teaching them how to manage an investment portfolio using a nearly $10 million portfolio of stocks and bonds called the Aristotle Fund. Daugherty regularly interacts with the business community to stay current with business trends and bring the best real-world knowledge to her students.

When a colleague died last year, Daugherty also stepped up to assume his leadership role for his entire department in addition to her own.
