College hosts annual student awards ceremony

Last Thursday night the college presented nearly 100 achievement awards to some of our “best and brightest” students across the seven academic units. 

While the range of awards is extensive – from research recognition, to community service, to national dean’s list – the general theme of the event is scholarship and leadership excellence.  As I remarked in introduction, these students are the most academically successful, the most professionally dedicated, the hardest working, the leaders.  They are indeed our future, and the antidote to despair – energetic and gifted young women and men committed to service, leadership, and changing the world for the better, making it “healthier.”  What could be more important, or a better cause for celebration?

I’m sure the 500 in attendance – our largest turnout ever for this event, packing the Cochran Center ballrooms – would agree.
