In a yearly tradition, the Merrick School of Business held its Academic Achievement Awards event in May. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our students before we send them off into the world to pursue their chosen careers.

During the ceremony, the 2017 Dean’s Award was presented to Tehillah Diamond, B.S. ’16. Diamond was selected from a pool of undergraduate students who most clearly demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership and service.

Diamond began her University of Baltimore educational journey in the spring of 2014 and quickly joined the Helen P. Denit Accounting Honors Program. She excelled as an accounting major, making Dean’s List with high honors during several semesters as well as joining the accounting honor society, Beta Alpha Psi. And like many UB students, she worked while attending school. For the last six years she has worked as an office associate at the State of Maryland Comptroller’s Office. While working she found time to participate in a summer internship at the accounting firm, RSM and tutor her peers. Her outstanding academic achievements afforded her scholarship awards from the University of Baltimore, the UB Foundation, the law firm of Ashcraft and Gerel, and the Maryland Society of Accounting and Tax Professionals. Diamond’s leadership skills were prominently on display in the classroom as well as in the community. Her future is bright and her talents will continue to be an asset to any organization.

Diamond’s academic achievements earned her Summa Cum Laude status at the fall 2016 Commencement.

The following students were awarded plaques and cash awards for their stellar achievements. Those who graduated in fall 2016 and spring 2017 were eligible for these awards.
