Dressed for Success. Recent Bauer grad Mario Cantu’s (center) wardrobe will get a boost when he receives a custom made suit from Lucho. Hector Villarreal and Patricia Sturion (’03), owners of upscale men’s boutique Lucho, are presenting the two recipients of the Ted Bauer Outstanding Leadership Award, Cantu and Chrystal Osborne (not pictured), with custom made Lucho suits. Both Cantu and Osborne led student organizations at Bauer. Cantu served as president of the student chapter of the American Marketing Association. Osborne was president of the National Association of Black Accountants. This represents the first time Lucho has presented Ted Bauer Outstanding Leadership Award recipients with suits and inaugurates a new tradition for the company who plan to make it an annual contribution, said Sturion.
