GREENVILLE, N.C. -

An ECU professor has received a top honor.

Dr. Samuel Sears is the winner of the 2013 O. Max Gardner Award.
     
The UNC Board of Governors presented him with the award Friday at UNC-Pembroke.
     
The honor pays tribute to one faculty member within the UNC system who made the greatest contribution to the welfare of the human race during the academic year.
     
Sears works with patients to alleviate fear and anxiety related to defibrillators and life-saving heart devices.
     
He developed an i-Phone app to help people cope.

Sears is the 8th ECU professor to earn the O. Max Gardner and only the second psychologist to win since the award was created in 1949.
