Brendan Daly, a junior in information science and technology at Missouri University of Science and Technology, has been awarded the Donald D. Myers Scholarship in recognition of his extraordinary service to the community and the campus.
The Kirkwood, Missouri, native received the award for the 2016-17 academic year during Missouri S&T’s 13th annual student leaders’ banquet at the Havener Center on April 18.
“Brendan was selected because of the meaningful impact he has made through his service, his ability to lead and inspire others, and his continued commitment to serve.” says Tina Reagan, student services advisor in student life at Missouri S&T.
Daly has consistently worked to organize frequent “Be the Match” bone marrow drives at Missouri S&T, and to inspire over 260 students, faculty and staff to register as potentially life-saving donors. By developing strategic partnerships with student organizations and recruiting and training new volunteers, Daly has increased the capacity of the university to help meet a critical need in the community, Reagan says.
The scholarship is named for Dr. Donald D. Myers, who was a professor of engineering management at Missouri S&T for over 30 years. Established in 2009 by his family with the generous contributions of his many friends, the scholarship is an annual tribute to his extraordinary life of service.
The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize and support Missouri S&T students who have made a significant contribution to the community or campus through their service.
