Myra Monfort achieved a successful career as legal counsel for Monfort of Colorado. She was instrumental in the College earning accreditation by the American Assembly of Collegiate schools of Business (AACSB), having served on the Dean's Advisory Board from 1983-1994.
Myra and her husband, Ken, President of Monfort of Colorado, established the Monfort Executive Professor Program in 1990. The program brings national business leaders into the UNC classroom, while exposing students to the inner workings of the corporate boardroom. The program was expanded in 1995 to include a Monfort Distinguished Professorship.
Over the years, Myra has been unbending in her commitment to UNC business program. The Monfort College of Business is grateful for her continued guidance and support toward business excellence.
