A Most Distinguished Honor for Arthrex
As one of Michigan State University’s (MSU) most distinguished alumni, the university recently recognized Arthrex President and Founder Reinhold Schmieding at its annual Alumni Grand Awards Gala held in East Lansing, MI. The awards honor MSU Spartans who strive to address the world’s most pressing problems each and every day, and Reinhold’s inspirational story of building Arthrex from the ground up to the successful global business it is today, truly exemplifies this.
Out of the 15 alumni honored, Reinhold was one of just two to receive the Distinguished Alumni recognition, awarded to those who have obtained the highest level of professional accomplishment and who possess the utmost integrity and character.
After the company’s story was introduced, Reinhold gave an inspiring speech to the more than 260 attendees, which included the university's president, deans, faculty and staff members, regional and statewide leaders, as well as fellow MSU alumni and supporters.
