The Craig School of Business at California State University, Fresno will be able to make a bigger mark with its internship program thanks to a recent gift of $100,000 from alumnus Mark Shuster and his wife Daina.
Mark Shuster, founder and managing director of Shuster Financial Group of Pasadena, made the pledge in honor of his father, Max Shuster, who also graduated from Fresno State.
Shuster is also the chair-elect of Fresno State's Business Advisory Council as well as co-chair of the Fresno State Southern California committee.
Mark and Daina Shuster live in Arcadia with their three children.
The Craig School of Business was founded in 1992 when Sid Craig, Fresno State alumnus and co-founder of Jenny Craig International, made a $10 million pledge to the university's School of Business and Administrative Sciences.
Now in its 15th year, the college's internship program infuses businesses and nonprofits with help from hundreds of student workers each year while extending both academic credit and valuable learning experience.
