Senior Ryan Leary receives 2010 Doyle Merit Award

Assumption senior Ryan Leary has received the 2010 Doyle Merit Award for Excellence in Economics or Global Studies. Leary is a double major in accounting and economics, with a business concentration. Leary is the son of Paul and Barbara Leary of Rockland.

The Doyle Merit Award is named for the late Professor George Doyle, who established the economics and global studies program at Assumption. The Department of Economics and Global Studies selects a senior recipient who, in the words of Dr. Doyle, is recognized for “academic success, character, well roundedness and potential within the field.” The award carries a $1,000 prize, made possible by generous gifts to the Doyle Scholarship fund.

During the past two summers, Leary interned at O’Connor & Drew P.C. in Braintree, where he worked in accounting within the financial auditing department. He has accepted an offer to join O’Connor & Drew fulltime in the fall and plans to begin taking his C.P.A. exams during the summer.

As an undergraduate, Ryan has volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club of Worcester and tutored in both accounting and economics in Assumption’s academic support center.
