It is awarded to incoming first-year students who have not only excelled in their academic pursuits, but also demonstrated outstanding leadership and a passion for serving others. Each year, we recognize a select group of students whose remarkable achievements have left a mark in their local community, knowing they will bring that same excellence to our campus.
