Supporting comments: "What impresses me most about David is his strong sense of personal responsibility which he couples with an outstanding work ethic to support the efforts of the team or group. He does not make quick decisions based on what is popular; he would rather take the high road, maintaining his principles and values. With his character, high moral and ethical behavior and sincere regard for his fellow students, he is an ideal model for all of our students. In his exceptional participation in LeaderShape, the messages of inclusive leadership and integrity truly resonated with him. As vice president of Sigma Phi Epsilon, David earned the respect of other members with his focus on high expectations within his chapter for members to maintain balance as scholars, gentlemen, leaders, and athletes. On a daily level, David is the ideal model of a balanced man."
