Cosentino receives Dean’s Distinguished Academic Achievement Award

EKU's College of Business and Technology is pleased to announce the 2016 Dean's Distinguished Academic Achievement Award. This $1,000 award is given periodically by the Dean's Office to an outstanding graduating student who, in addition to having academically excelled in more than one major within the College, possesses good character, leadership, citizenship, and social responsibility.

The 2016 College of Business and Technology Dean’s Distinguished Academic Achievement Award recipient is Mr. Adam Cosentino.

Adam is also this year’s distinguished senior representing the Department of Management, Marketing and International Business. He is from Lexington, Kentucky, and will be graduating in May with his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management as well as Global Supply Chain Management.

Adam is a Kentucky Motor Transportation Scholar and Colonel Plus Scholar.

Interested in pursuing international experience, he participated in a semester long study of the Chinese business culture that concluded with a ten-day trip through Beijing, Shanghai, and Suzhou. That experience, along with the dual scholastic transnational business analysis project, plus additional real-time business model analytics, made it possible for Adam to pursue top-level internships. It should come as no surprise that during his time in academia, he has, at a minimum, maintained at least one position of nearly full-time employment.

Already making his mark in the Global Supply Chain Management industry, Adam is currently interning with Hitachi Automotive Systems as the first member of their dedicated Logistics department. And during previous his internship with the Richmond Industrial Development Corporation (RIDC) as a Supply Chain Analyst, his team partnered with EKU to develop a complete assessment tool that, when implemented, will serve to encourage overall economic development within our region.

Generous with his time, Adam participated in the Vaughn’s Branch Flood Hazard Mitigation Project in Lexington – a project dear to his home community. And he took part in the 2015 EPA impact study of protected wet lands that surround his micro community of Pine Meadow.

He is a lover of Siberian Huskies, is an active member of the American Kennel Club, and contributes to the preservation of the world’s oldest registered breed. Not to be outdone, he is also the creator and founder of the bearded skull product line that is currently offered for sale in Lexington.

Congratulations to Adam Cosentino on being selected for the 2016 CB&T Dean’s Distinguished Academic Achievement Award.
