It is truly an honor to announce the award-winning graduates: Rachael Steelman, Melissa Catalano, and Shanice Hastings! The three awards that were granted were the Stevenson University Pin, the Provost’s Award for Exceptional Scholarship, and the Orsia F. Young Leadership Award.
The Stevenson University Pin was awarded to Rachael Steelman. This award is the most comprehensive honor the university confers on one graduating senior whose total personal performance is meritorious, including academic achievement, independence, integrity of thought and action, reliability, respect for others, and involvement in university or community affairs.
The Provost’s Award for Exceptional Scholarship was awarded to Melissa Catalano. The Provost’s Award for Exceptional Scholarship is conferred from time to time on one graduating student who has performed academically in a particularly exceptional way, has demonstrated unique intellectual ability and initiative, and has contributed to the academic pursuits of his or her peers.
The Orsia F. Young Leadership Award was awarded to Shanice Hastings for HaSS. This award is conferred on one graduating student from each academic school who has performed in an outstanding manner as a leader in the university community, initiated action, motivated others to do so, and has been an agent for positive change in the university.
Congratulations on your accomplishments and best of wishes for your future endeavors!
