We Heart SbySALISBURY, MD---Dr. James Buss, dean of Salisbury University’s Honors College, loves Salisbury. And Salisbury loves him back.

WeHeartSBY, an organization dedicated to recognizing the “good” being done in the city, recently honored Buss with its second annual WeHeartSBY Import Award. The accolade recognizes individuals who, though not originally from the Salisbury area, have adopted the city as their home and have gone out of their way to help make it a better place.

Buss came to SU from Oklahoma City University in 2013. Since then, he has cultivated partnerships between the city, its businesses and organizations, and the Honors College (and its predecessor, the Thomas E. Bellavance Honors Program). Students have become more connected with the city thanks to his efforts said Ethan Wilson, who presented the award on behalf of sponsor Kuhn’s Jewelers.

The Import Award was one of 10 honors announced during this year’s WeHeartSBY Awards ceremony. Winners were selected via online voting. Some 1,000 ballots were cast.
