2009 President’s Award honors select undergraduate and graduate students

PULLMAN — Forty-four undergraduate and graduate students have been selected to receive the 2009 President’s Award at WSU.

For more than a decade, the President’s Award has been bestowed annually to less than one percent of the university’s undergraduate and graduate students who exemplify exceptional leadership and service to the university and the community. Students are selected based on their leadership and engagement consistent with the university’s values of inquiry and innovation, character, teamwork and diversity.
 
The 44 students selected include undergraduate and graduate students from a wide variety of academic fields, from broadcast news to neuroscience, and includes students from around the state. This is the fourth consecutive year the number of honorees has been less than 50, a strong message from the selection committee and program officials that this award honors the top engaged leaders in the WSU community.

A complete list of honorees is available via the “awards and recognition” link at:  www.lead.wsu.edu Questions about the program may be addressed to Connan Campbell, director of Student Involvement, at 509-335-3138 or connan@wsu.edu
