Undergraduate student Chris Lisle has been selected as the Fall 2011 recipient of the Daniel B. Woodruff Memorial Scholarship.
The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate established the prestigious award in 2000 in permanent tribute to USD graduate Daniel Woodruff. Woodruff died of cancer at the age of 27, less than two years after graduating from USD. The scholarship is awarded to a student who best epitomizes Woodruff’s positive qualities of “academic excellence, warmth, determination, intellectual curiosity and unabashed love for humankind.” It is the only scholarship that students cannot apply for.
Lisle, who graduated with honors in December 2011, majored in economics with minors in real estate and business administration. While at USD, Lisle was the president of the Student Alumni Association in 2010, a member of the Real Estate Society and represented USD in last spring’s USC International Case Competition and NAIOP Case Competition. He has committed to help coach USD’s USC case competition team this spring.
In October 2011, Lisle accepted an analyst position with the London Group Realty Advisors, where he conducts market research and feasibility studies for various product types and provides strategic recommendations for the company’s clients. Lisle previously interned at Pacifica Companies and Highland Partnership Inc.
