Scholar Holler

Each month the Center for Student Achievement recognizes an outstanding student for academic excellence.  The student is highlighted on our website, in the CSA, and in the Flyer student newspaper as a way to encourage other students to achieve their academic potential.

Faculty and staff are invited to nominate students for Scholar Holler.  The nomination form should describe the student's academic accomplishments.

Words of Wisdom: " Never lose site of your goals because hard work and dedication always pay off."


October 2014 Winner-David Salmon


Major/Minor: Accounting & Information Systems

Hometown: Chantilly, Virginia

Professor David Emerson: "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 other 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 than 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 that halfway to passing the class."
