Constantino, who lives in Cary, N.C., earned two degrees from NC State — a bachelor’s degree in business management in 1984 and a bachelor’s degree in accounting in 1985.
“This award is presented annually by Poole College to a distinguished individual who has made outstanding contributions to the college, to his or her profession and to the NC State community,” said Ira R. Weiss, dean of the Poole College of Management.
“Throughout his career, Mike has demonstrated the professionalism and commitment to service that is so important in today’s professional environment. He also has been a tremendous friend and supporter of the college and the university as a whole.”
Constantine and his wife Lori established the Michael and Lori Constantino Endowment Fund that provides fellowship awards to the Poole College’s Jenkins Master of Accounting students. Constantino has served on the college’s Board of Advisors since 2003, including a term as chairman of the board from 2004 to 2006.
In 2004, Constantino was awarded the Distinguished Alumni award by the NC State Alumni Association and Poole College.
