2016 Emerging Leader Award
Ericka M. Blair ’14
The Emerging Leader Award is presented to an alumna or alumnus, who graduated within the last ten years, for his or her leadership and dedicated service to Moravian College. The Moravian College Alumni Association gratefully acknowledges Ericka Blair ’14 as its 2016 Emerging Leader Award recipient for her outstanding service and dedicated leadership to Moravian College.
Leadership comes naturally to Ericka Blair ’14, whose energy, drive, and enthusiasm seem boundless. The four-year member of the Moravian College varsity women’s basketball team also served on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee and participated in Economics and Business Club, the Amrhein Investment Club, and the Phi Sigma Iota Foreign Language Honor Society. She spearheaded the first annual Moravian College Special Olympics Basketball Tournament, which continues today, and volunteered countless hours for a variety of community organizations and efforts. A management major with a concentration in marketing, she interned at both Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom and Victaulic. Upon graduating, Blair was selected to join the Blue and Grey Club as a team representative and helped implement the Blue and Grey Experience tent at homecoming. She continues to give back to her alma mater by donating, helping to sponsor the Women’s Basketball Pinkout, participating in the women’s basketball alumni game, and volunteering at the annual Moravian Women’s Basketball Golf Classic. In May, Blair was elected vice president of the Blue and Grey Club, and she continues to work to improve the student athlete experience at Moravian College. Her degree, internships, and demonstrated leadership earned Blair a position—just two weeks after graduating—as international account coordinator at Victaulic, where, among other responsibilities, she implemented initiatives for developing and improving internal and external sales processes and managed 20-plus distributor accounts in Mexico. Currently, Blair is a marketing coordinator for Murray Devine Valuation Advisors in Philadelphia.
