Academic Achievement Awards

Dean’s Award
This award is presented to the top undergraduate Merrick School of Business student who demonstrates high academic achievement, leadership and service.

David M. Pearl, B.S. ’12  Major: International Business
David Pearl has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments while completing his degree at UB. He graduated summa cum laude and achieved Dean’s List high honors twice, as well retaining Dean’s list status for all other semesters. David graduated from the Helen P. Denit Honors program and his final honors project grew out of a term paper from a Social Media Marketing class. He expanded his paper into an extensive honors project — a marketing plan for his current employer — several parts of which his employer has subsequently implemented. Not only did David excel academically at UB, he also found time to give back to the UB community. He contributed to the redesign of the University’s new web site through roundtable discussions and by being a member of an eye tracking study. He participated in the student note taking program for the Center of Educational Access and he was involved in the Food and Faculty series.David is a volunteer with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and has helped the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) with several fundraising events. This year he has committed to raising a minimum of $1,900.00 by completing the Seagull Century with LLS’s Team in Training.
