College of Science and Technology honors Dean's Scholars
Nine outstanding College of Science and Technology (CSAT) students were honored on April 22 at the Dean's Scholars Ceremony.
Faculty, students, family and friends joined CSAT Dean Orion Rogers in the Center for the Sciences to highlight and celebrate the academic excellence of students in each of the college's nine departments.
Stories of success, community service, career aspirations and tireless dedication were shared by department chairs and professors of each deserving student.
"As teachers and mentors, we are inspired by your dedication to excellence and enthusiasm for learning," said Rogers. "You are multifaceted individuals who seize academic, leadership and service opportunities throughout campus and your lives."
