Each year, graduating senior students across the United States are chosen for a distinguished award, that award being the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
Students who are nominated and then chosen for the award show prominence in areas such as academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities and exhibit promise in future potential. On this basis, students are judged.
Those chosen were Lorinda Barnett, Phillip Barnett, Michael Bryant, Renetta Easley, Rosalva Garcia, Virginia Hacker, Robin Holland, Jasmine Hovsepian, Jeff Howe, Dana Jones, Julie Kiefer, Mary Luna, Timothy Marshall, Scott Miller, Mark Platt, George Rich, Deborah Silva, Susan Stern, Jeanine Tancredi, Avedia Tarakjian, Rosalie Valencia, Eric Vilchis, Greta Walters and Kandy Williams.
The award’s focal point is contribution, whether to self or to others. Since 1934, outstanding students have been honored in this annual directory (a book that lists the names of students who received the award).
Recently, a selection committee, composed of students, faculty and administration, met to choose the 24 students for this prestigious honor. Unlike most awards, the Who’s Who honor doesn’t limit its honor realm to one particular group of students; instead, the. award spreads its outlets toward all types of college individuals, such as the scholar, the editor, the president or even the athlete.
Accompanying the actual social honor of the award; the students nominated from the college will receive a letter of recognition and a plaque bearing the individual’s name and a copy of the 1982 edition of Who’s Who. Also, the students will be recognized at the 1982 Associated Students Federation (ASF) Spring Awards Banquet.
