Each month the Center for Student Achievement recognizes an outstanding student for academic excellence. The student is highlighted on our website, in the CSA, and in the Flyer student newspaper as a way to encourage other students to achieve their academic potential.
Faculty and staff are invited to nominate students for Scholar Holler. The nomination form should describe the student's academic accomplishments.
Major: Communications: Media Production

Words of Wisdom: Most of my success in college has come from being present and available. If you are ever feeling stressed about things, take a step back. Everyone is going to tell you academic success comes down to time management, and yet students still procrastinate. Break those stereotypes. Be present and engaged in every class because the little lessons you learn in small classes may make a huge impact down the road.
Dr. Walton: “Arthur is at the top echelon of students I have worked with at Salisbury. A senior CMAT major with media production track, Arthur is already on his way to becoming a screenwriter and showrunner - and will make a big difference in the world. He is very impressive. In addition to maintaining a 4.0 throughout his academic career, while keeping an active presence on campus and holding down impressive jobs, he is a campus leader - the head of production at SUTV. Last year he wrote, directed and produced Salisbury Night Live, which had the highest ever viewership ratings of an SUTV show. He also has been involved in activities on and off campus. Finally, he is one of two candidates this year that Salisbury is nominating to be considered for a Marshall Scholarship, and he is also applying for a Fulbright (both to the UK).”
Major: English: Creative Writing & Political Science
Hometown: Owings Mills, MD
Words of Wisdom: Always try, even when you don't think you're going to succeed, because even if every two steps forward is one step back, you'll get there eventually.
Dr. Surak: “Danielle is the type of student who fully engages in projects both for service and for class. When she commits to working with a program or project she will run with it, ending with a successful and inspiring event. For example, after attending College Debate 2016 she was so euthanistic about voter registration that she took the initiative to organize an hour-long presentation for more than 800 members of our sorority meeting on how and why to vote. The event was quite impressive and a good example of Danielle’s skills and determination. Danielle holds the prestigious distinction of Presidential Citizen Scholar at Salisbury University. Danielle is truly an exceptional student. She is dedicated, compassionate, and passionate. I truly enjoy working with her both inside and outside of the classroom. She is always ready to give to her community.”
