Nielsen Executive Encourages FMU Scholars to Proceed with Confidence


MIAMI GARDENS, FL  – Cheryl Pearson-McNeil, a senior executive at Nielsen, encouraged more than 500 scholars to “proceed with confidence,” at Florida Memorial University’s Honors and Awards Day program. McNeil, the global multimedia ratings giant’s senior vice-president of public affairs and government relations, shared her wisdom and guidance with the audience.

“Your authenticity increases the value of what you bring to the table,” Pearson advised. “Embrace disappointments because the lessons you learn will contribute to your ‘secret sauce’.”

She jokingly cautioned students to dodge “professional stalkers.”

“Practice safe savings and responsible money management,” the Purdue University alumna said. “Save for emergencies and avoid unnecessary debt. Those bill collectors are professional stalkers, who won’t stop calling you.”

Honors and Award Day celebrates the academic achievements of students and scholarship recipients. Randy James, PhD, chairman of the program committee commended the honorees.

“Today we showcase the best and brightest students we have at FMU,” James said. “This honor demonstrates their commitment to excellence and academic performance.”

William Boyd, a senior majoring in political science, was “honored” to earn a spot on the President’s List. The list showcases full-time students earning a 4.0 grade point average in during a semester in the previous academic year.

“Florida Memorial University has provided an excellence undergraduate foundation for me,” Boyd said. “I am striving to be consistent and continue performing at a high level.”
