Aaron Earls '90 Honored with Distinguished Alumni Award

Friday’s all-school assembly welcomed numerous guests – parents, siblings, and grandparents – all here to enjoy Spring Family Weekend. We also welcomed Cushing grad, Aaron Earls ’90, who was presented with the 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award.
Aaron, who was named Ideal Cushing Boy at his Cushing graduation, was awarded with this honor as an outstanding member of the alumni body. “Aaron represents the very best of what we hope to instill in our students,” said Headmaster Tracy. “He has made Cushing enormously proud.”
After co-founding the pioneering social media agency New Media Strategies with fellow grad Pete Snyder ’90, Aaron has continued his entrepreneurial endeavors, his most recent, Sport195, a global social network for sports.
Aaron credits Cushing with instilling in him what he calls Cushing Character, such as the importance of caring, working hard, being fearless, celebrating our differences, working hard, making sure to fail (which is preparation for victories), and winning. “What Cushing does better than any other school is to help students develop character,” says Aaron. “As members of this community, it is in our DNA to care, to be selfless, to be optimistic, and to take action. I will continue to do my best to live up to this award.”
