President Honors Outstanding Blue Hens

On October 30th, 2009, the University of Delaware honored the special achievements of five alumni during its annual Presidential Citation for Outstanding Achievement Recognition Ceremony in the Roselle Center for the Arts. UD President Patrick Harker welcomed the recipients and their guests to the ceremony that took place during the festivities of Homecoming weekend. The five honored alumni included David Bullock, CEO of White Bullock Group, a business development firm with a focus on social media; Faye (Harper) Corman, a global product stewardship specialist for DuPont; Louis Honick, an entrepreneur and founder of HostMySite.com; Scott Rosas, senior consultant with Concept Systems Inc., and Rob Van Etten, President of Brighton Cromwell, a supply chain integrator for the defense industry. Since 1992, The Presidential Citation Award has been presented to UD graduates who have exhibited great promise in their professional and public service activities. As President Harker proclaimed during the ceremony, “Only 192 out of the University’s 143,000 living alumni have ever received this distinction, a mere one tenth of a percent of UD Alumni.”

President Harker also noted that the 2009 honorees embody the goals and principles established in the University’s Path to Prominence ™. Harker continued, “Our Path really comes down to one promise, a promise upon which every other goal is predicted – we will achieve excellence and have an impact in everything we do… The five individuals we’re honoring this afternoon have internalized the promise and live it every day.” The ceremony concluded with a reception for the honorees and their guests in the Roselle Center for the Arts.
