Colin Myers Named SunTrust 2013 Distinguished Leader of Merit

April 8, 2013 - Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business announces that full-time MBA student Colin Myers has been named this year's SunTrust Distinguished Leader of Merit. David Fuller, president and CEO of SunTrust Central Florida, presented Myers with the award during a Rollins MBA Center for Leadership Development ceremony last Thursday. He will be recognized again for his achievement at the commencement ceremony on May 4, 2013. In addition to Myers, Crummer students Lauren Maxwell and Maisa Aguiar were named SunTrust Leaders of Merit.

The SunTrust Distinguished Leader of Merit award is the top honor given to the Leadership Center’s second-year MBA student who best exemplifies the qualities of ethical, responsible and thoughtful leadership, and who has applied these characteristics and practices at the school and in the community. Supported by the generosity of SunTrust Bank, this recognition is considered to be among the most prestigious awards given by the Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business.

“The SunTrust Distinguished Leader of Merit award honors students who demonstrate the leadership skills and commitment to add value in their careers and community,” said Susan A. Bach, Ph.D., director of the Rollins MBA Center for Leadership Development. “We’ve seen award recipients advance quickly among their peers.”

The criteria for these awards consist of behavioral assessments, participation in leadership programs and coaching, course completion in leadership and communications, and community service. Students who meet these requirements compile a Leadership Portfolio that includes a detailed ongoing development plan, written reflections of demonstrated leadership, references, a resumé and future leadership objectives that they have mapped out during the degree program. The entrants are judged by a selection panel of local Orlando business leaders who serve on the Center’s Advisory Board.

This year’s selection panel included Marna Killian, Margaritaville; Jason Goldberg, MEometry; Marva Johnson and Reinaldo Llano, Jr., Bright House Networks; Bridgit Parchment, SunTrust Bank; and Jessica Merrell, RVR Consulting Group and 2012 SunTrust Distinguished Leader of Merit.
