Business professor wins SCICU Excellence in Teaching Award
Assistant Professor of Business Administration Tracy McCurry was one of 20 professors from member colleges honored by South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU) in its 2021 Excellence in Teaching Awards.
Each year SCICU recognizes outstanding faculty members from each of its 20 member schools. Recipients are each given a $3,000 professional development grant. The customary recognition banquet was not held this year or in 2020 because of COVID-19 concerns.

Her classes have been recognized for projects with The Renaissance, a retirement community in Due West, as well as Big Oaks Animal Rescue, PAWS, and the Greenwood Humane Society.
She is a certified travel agent and teaches classes in the area of hospitality and tourism. She started Erskine’s chapter of Sigma Beta Delta, a business honor society, and serves as chapter advisor.
McCurry’s experience prior to joining the Erskine faculty includes work in mortgage banking, financial accounting non-profit marketing, and manufacturing and quality control engineering. She earned an M.B.A. at Clemson University.
