“The Integrity, Character, and Ethics (ICE) Award" recognizes the UMD student who has best exemplified the ideals of integrity, character,
and ethics this academic year. Students, faculty, and staff can submit nominations for any University of Maryland student. Aaron Bricco is the 2015-2016 award recipient. Aaron is a combat veteran of the US Army and has been one of three students that has helped to build an amazing community of veterans wanting to make a difference. Aaron’s nominator stated, “During his tenure as the TerpVets President, the organization has made huge strides in increasing awareness for veterans as well as integrating them into the student community. Aaron’s mature, level-headed leadership is rare at best. Aaron is described as fearless, courageous, and committed to serving others. The "Bricco Effect" will continue long after he has graduated.”
