William I Miller Award for Academic Excellence in Computer Science Spring 2019Posted on: April 22, 2019
The William I Miller Award for Academic Excellence in Computer Science is awarded annually to a graduating bachelor’s degree student in Computer Science who has an outstanding academic record. I'm happy to tell you that this year the winner of the Miller Award is Andrew Leonard. His citation reads:
Andrew Leonard transferred into UMass Boston from Boston College in Spring 2016, first majoring in Liberal Arts and then switching to Computer Science in Fall 2016. Since all of his general education credits were transferred in, Andrew was able to complete his major requirements in five semesters. Andrew’s GPA is a perfect 4.0, which is no surprise to anyone who knows him. In all his classes he clearly stood out as one of the top students with his keen mind, intellectual curiosity and constant pursuit of knowledge in and outside of class. He has been constantly on the Dean's list and won the Litton Industries Scholarship in Fall 2018. During the Summer and Fall of 2018 he worked as a research assistant for Prof. Gabriel Ghinita. Andrew graduated in Fall 2018 and is currently considering several job offers. Andrew's academic excellence, intellectual curiosity, and strong work ethic make him an ideal recipient of the Miller award.
