The Arizona State University Alumni Association will honor three exceptional alumni leaders during the Nov. 19 Homecoming football game against the Oregon State Beavers.

The honorees are outstanding members of the ASU community who have consistently contributed their time, energy and expertise to help ASU continue to grow in its role as The New American University. 

Chuck Inderieden, '87 BS, and Chuck Goodmiller, ‘90 BS, co-managing partners of the Henry+Horne CPA firm, will each be awarded the Alumni Service Award for their long-standing support of the Sun Devil 100 program since its inception in 2015.

Krisine Kassel, ‘91 BS, founder of the Tempe-based Benefits by Design health insurance and employee benefits agency, will be awarded the Past Chair’s Award for her service as ASU Alumni Board of Directors chair during fiscal year 2021–22. 

Inderieden and Goodmiller both graduated from ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business with a Bachelor of Science in accounting; Inderieden earned his degree in 1987, while Goodmiller received his diploma in 1990. Their CPA firm, Henry+Horne, with offices in Tempe, Scottsdale and Casa Grande, is a Top 200 nationally ranked business that has been providing professional services since 1957. 

For many years, Henry+Horne has performed accounting services for the ASU Alumni Association’s Sun Devil 100 program. The Sun Devil 100 is an annual ASU business awards program that celebrates the achievements of alumni who own or lead organizations that exemplify innovation, growth and the entrepreneurial spirit.

In addition to leading their business, both Inderieden and Goodmiller actively volunteer within the community. Inderieden has been a member of the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council Financial Committee and served on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Phoenix Executive Council. Goodmiller has served as a board member of the Banner Casa Grande Medical Center and Banner Casa Grande Hospital Foundation, and he serves as board treasurer of the Casa Grande Rotary Scholarship Foundation.  

Past Chair's Award

Kristine Kassel, a true Sun Devil and an exemplary alumna, was chair of the ASU Alumni Board of Directors during fiscal year 2021–22, an exciting, growth-filled year for the ASU Alumni Association. Kassel’s strong direction helped enhance the services offered to all alumni. 

During her tenure, the Alumni Association benefited from Kassel’s expertise and enthusiasm, her role as representative of the Alumni Association and status as a multi-year Sun Devil 100 recipient. Kassel’s organizational acumen and strong advocacy helped the Alumni Association build a stronger ASU community and advance the university.

While chair, Kassel made the ASU Alumni Association scholarship programs a priority, growing the number of students through the Medallion Scholarship program. The ASU Alumni Chapter organization also expanded under her leadership, as did programming in virtual, hybrid and in-person formats.
