In a momentous shift from years past, the 2020 Annual Academic Achievement Awards and Honor Societies' Induction Ceremonies event was moved to the Zoom virtual platform. We were able to accommodate our students to showcase their perseverance and hard work during the May ceremony. As a follow up, Assistant Dean Kathea Smith and Director of Marketing and Communications, Danielle Giles, circled the Baltimore Beltway and other parts of the state to hand-deliver all of the awards to personally and at a social distance to each of the merit award winners. 


In the highlight of the night was the the 2020 Dean’s Award that was presented to Louis Chaverini , B.S. '19. The award is presented to the undergraduate student who demonstrates high academic achievement, leadership and service. Chaverini transferred to the University of Baltimore in the spring of 2018 to complete his bachelor of science in business administration degree with a specialization in accounting. He graduated summa cum laude in December 2019. His career goal was to be an accountant in the federal government and he has achieved that dream. While a student, he completed an internship at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Indian Head, Maryland. When Chaverini graduated in December he was hired as a full-time accountant. Outside of his coursework and internships, he also found time to be a member of Beta Alpha Psi, the National Society of Leadership and Success, and the ISACA. He also serves as the treasurer and board member for Itemwize, a non-profit focused on the environment and recycling.
