Center Advisory Board Chair Honored

Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010

Michael Hackworth, chairman of the Board of Directors and company co-founder of Cirrus Logic, and his wife, Joan, received the "Spirit of Silicon Valley Lifetime Achievement Award"  from the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

Michael Hackworth, a longtime member and now chair of the Center's Advisory Board, and Joan Hackworth received the honor based on "impeccable ethics, business excellence and community engagement."

Two Center programs are named for the Hackworths, whose contributions support applied ethics research and peer-to-peer programs for undergraduates.  They are pictured here with Hackworth Fellow Meghan Skarzynski, an SCU senior who is planning a variety of activities about business ethics for her classmates in the Business School.
