October  2014 Winner-David Salmon


Major/Minor - Accounting & Information Systems

Hometown: Chantilly, Virginia

Professor David Emerson: "Because "Dave Salmon is an outstanding student-athlete. An outstanding business student, he carries a 3.6 GPA while playing wide receiver on SU's football team. He earned the highest average in my Intermediate Accounting I class of any student last semester. Because of his exemplary performance, I selected Mr. Salmon to serve as my Supplemental Instructor for this class this year, and his results and reviews have been excellent. For those students who attend his sessions, I hear nothing but praise for his content and delivery, and on average, students attending his reviews earned five points more that their counterparts on the midterm exam. He exhibits all of the qualities I would like our graduates to possess." 

Words of Wisdom: "A great man once said that 80 percent of success is just showing up. Attendance is the most important aspect of any class. If you show up, you're already more than halfway to passing the class."
