Each year, the University of Baltimore Merrick School of Business hosts the Distinguished Entrepreneur Awards to celebrate the achievements of individuals who have positively impacted both the Baltimore business landscape and its philanthropic community.

On May 1, 2008, Edward Attman, founder and President of Acme Paper & Supply Co., received the 2008 Distinguished Entrepreneur Award from the University of Baltimore for his commitment to entrepreneurship and business growth.

According to Jim Kucher, Executive Director of the Entrepreneur Program, "Mr. Attman's business vision perfectly reflects the long standing tradition of entrepreneurship that exists at UB, and is a powerful inspiration for the emerging entrepreneurs we are training today.  His founding and management of Acme Paper & Supply are a showcase for all manner of business, in that he has demonstrated a level of consistency, courage and innovation that is by now part of the fabric of the firm.  Anyone starting or growing a company can learn from this example".
