An Outstanding Student Award is presented each year to one student from each associate degree or diploma curriculum.
The selections for these awards are based on academic excellence, relationships with peers and staff, and other campus/community service contributions.
During her congratulations to the students, Dr. Ileana M. Smith, vice president and Owens Campus director, noted that “… the faculty bestows this honor with a great deal of pride and respect.”
Other presentations during the program were the Andre Higgins Alumni Graduation Award, given to a graduating student who has distinguished him/herself while pursuing an academic career; the Bernard Luterancik Engineering Award, given to an outstanding student in the architectural engineering technology; and special recognition of students in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Alpha Beta Gamma Honor Society student, and two members of the 2010 All-Delaware Academic Team.
