Each year, 10 graduating seniors from Washington State University are recognized for excellence in several areas: academics, athletics, campus involvement, community service, and visual and performing arts.

The WSU Alumni Association and Student Alumni Ambassadors coordinate the 80-year tradition of honoring these outstanding students, who are nominated from across WSU’s six campuses.

A selection committee comprised of faculty, staff, and students chose the winners based on criteria that fit each category. 

The 2022 honorees are:

  • Academics: Forrest Fearington and Annie Lu
  • Athletics: Michaela Bayerlova and Chloe Larson
  • Campus Involvement: Jocelyn Granados Mejia and Nolan Thomaswick
  • Community Service: Lindsey Gass and Aydan Garland-Miner
  • Visual and Performing Arts: Cameron Barton and Cristina Navarro 

“My favorite part of my experience at WSU has to be the relationships I’ve cultivated, whether it be with my professors or my peers,” Garland-Miner said. “My time at WSU wouldn’t be the same without the people I’ve been lucky enough to have by my side.”
