Alumni Awards

Alumni Leadership Award - 2013

On Saturday, December 14, Robert Schultheis made his 10th appearance on stage during SU's 88th-year Fall Commencement, held at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center.

In addition to earning his B.S. in elementary education from SU in 2000, Schultheis has been a familiar face among the stage party at the University's semi-annual commencement ceremonies since 2009 as president of the SU Alumni Association board of directors. In that capacity, he congratulated graduating students, offering them a small gift and welcoming them into the association. Having stepped down from that position earlier last year, he received the Alumni Leadership Award at the December ceremony.

A member of the alumni board since 2004, Schultheis has emphasized networking and, as president, continued the board's record of 100 percent participation in the SU Annual Fund drive. He is currently the alumni association liaison to the SU Foundation, Inc.'s board of directors.
