MBA candidate Jake Fullwood and senior Daniel McMaster were selected as the 2007 Mitte Foundation Circle of Excellence Award winners on the basis of their academic credentials and exemplary leadership, behavior, citizenship and community involvement.
“This award is presented to the best of the best,” says Cheryl Nolting, executive director of the Mitte Foundation. “As recipients of Mitte scholarships, these students have already demonstrated an outstanding level of academic performance and social responsibility. Circle of Excellence awards are given to those within this elite group who are able to maintain the highest level of achievement and commitment. It is an honor to have them as part of our program.”
Fullwood completes his MBA this month with a 4.0 GPA. As an undergraduate, he graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M. He has served as president of the MBA Students Helping Our Community, leading community service efforts in which more than 50 percent of Mays MBA students participated. MBA SHOC also raised more than $5,000 for local non-profit organizations.
McMaster will graduate from Texas A&M this year with honors with a BBA and MS in accounting. Throughout his time at A&M, he has been a leader and an active participant in campus and community service organizations. McMaster has devoted countless hours to Habitat for Humanity since he was in his teens and he has continued that involvement throughout his academic career.
