The one-on-one attention, the smaller, more intimate setting at Montgomery helped me to thrive.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 06, 2011
Montgomery College will bestow its highest honor – the Milton F. Clogg Outstanding Alumni Achievement Award – on M&M’s CEO Carey Dove at the college’s 2011 Alumni Awards dinner on Friday, April 15, Best Bark Media announced today.
Carey is one of four recipients of the college’s most prestigious award, bestowed upon alumni who “have demonstrated exemplary contributions to their professions, their communities, and/or the college.”
“I’m really touched,” said Carey, a 1982 graduate who also earned a degree from the University of Maryland. “I’ve always felt an enormous debt to Montgomery College,” she reflected. “My early school experience seemed too big, too impersonal. The one-on-one attention, the smaller, more intimate setting at Montgomery helped me to thrive,” continued Carey, who studied general business and management at the college.
M & M Welding and Fabricators was founded in 1972 by Russell “Muggs” Mullican, Carey’s father. With her business management degree in hand, Carey assumed control of the company in 1990, although her initial love of the business can be traced to the many summers she spent as a day laborer on the M&M payroll. “I loved working in the field. There’s no better way to learn the business. And no better way to get acquainted with the competent, loyal team that we’ve always been fortunate to have at M&M,” said Carey. “I’d probably still be on the M&M frontlines if my father hadn’t pulled me into the office in alarm after spying my developing arm muscles!”
Carey Dove has grown the company her father started nearly 40 years ago into one of the most successful woman-owned businesses in the country. To learn more, visit M&Mwelding.com
