Dr. Joseph B. Mosca Scholarship Award
Bryan Duarte Wins the First Ever Dr. Joseph B. Mosca Scholarship Award
By: Richard Luongo
On Wednesday, April 10th, the Delta-Beta Chapter of Sigma Pi Fraternity awarded its first annual Dr. Joseph B. Mosca Scholarship Award. The award is named for Dr. Mosca, Chairman of the Department of Management and Decision Sciences in the Leon Hess Business School and long-time faculty advisor of Sigma Pi at Monmouth University. Dr. Mosca is not just the longest serving faculty advisor to a student group out of any student group on campus (Dr. Mosca began his service as faculty advisor in 1989), he is a source of support, dedication, input, guidance, and good company that all the brothers appreciate.
Dr. Mosca is also a fully initiated member of the fraternity. In recognition of his contributions as faculty advisor, he has won countless Most Outstanding Advisor Awards from Monmouth University and in 2008 he was awarded the Dr. Robert Burns Most Outstanding Faculty Advisor in the entire Sigma Pi Fraternity, International. When the alumni of Sigma Pi at Monmouth decided to create a new scholarship based on leadership, academic excellence, and community service, creating an award in Dr. Mosca’s name was the obvious choice. Not only is Dr. Mosca actively engaged in advising the undergraduate chapter of Sigma Pi, he keeps his door open for any alumni brothers looking for advice or good company.
David Reale, a university alumnus and member of the Monmouth University Board of Trustees, and Joseph V. Palazzolo, also an alumnus and the chapter’s alumni advisor since 2003, attended the April 10th meeting to announce that senior member Bryan Duarte was given the honor of winning the first ever Dr. Joseph B. Mosca Scholarship Award. After winning the award, Bryan commented: “I am grateful and honored to be winning the first ever Dr. Joseph B. Mosca Award. First, I would also like to thank Dr. Mosca for all of his support. Dr. Mosca, you are not just our advisor but also our wise brother who oversees us and gives good advice. Moreover, I would also like to thank Dave Reale for being a supportive brother who helps us go participate in national events and gives us valuable feedback. As the first winner of this award, I want to send a message to everyone to be overachievers, get involved, be exemplary members of the community, and work their hardest because it feels great to create many close genuine connections, give back, and gain real world experience. ” Bryan is graduating in January 2013 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance and a Minor in Information Technology. Bryan is also a member of the Monmouth EOF Scholarship Program – a program designed to give intelligent and active high school students from financially underprivileged families an opportunity at a higher education. On the EOF Scholarship Program, Duarte commented: “I am very thankful for the program because it is the reason I was given the opportunity to take advantage of my time at Monmouth.” In return for their support of his education, Bryan maintains a high GPA and has been inducted into two honor societies all while projecting a positive image on campus.
In terms of being active on campus, Bryan has been an SGA senator, the last Greek Senate Vice President, the Sigma Pi recruitment chairman, and the most recent Past Chapter President of Sigma Pi. In the Greek Senate, Bryan led six chairmen and worked as a team to increase community service and positive exposure of the Greek community. During his term as Chapter President of Sigma Pi, the chapter achieved a ranking as one of the Top 25 chapters in the nation and won an award for the biggest percentage increase in membership of any chapter in the nation. Also, the chapter’s executive committee –which Bryan directly managed – was rated one of the top 3 most efficient executive committees in the nation. On campus, Bryan was 2012’s Greek Man of the Year.
As his term as Chapter President came to an end, Bryan stayed highly involved by leading, organizing, and influencing the chapter’s Superstorm Sandy Relief program. This program raised the most funds out of any student organization and generated countless hours of community service to help people in need around the Monmouth area.
