honored at Whos Who banquet
Students rolled out of bed early Saturday morning to be
recognized for their academic and philanthropic achievements
at the annual Whos Who Among College Students
Don Mills, vice chancellor for student affairs, opened
the brunch and awards ceremony by commending students
for their efforts. He briefly shared about the history
of TCU and the legendary people who made a
commitment to make the university great.
Let us remember the responsibility to use our gifts
to promote a world that is more just, fair and abundant,
Students from the seven schools and colleges on campus
were recognized for their accomplishments, which ranged
from writing books and computer programs to directing
movies in L.A. to dancing overseas and working with wild
birds of prey. Faculty members and deans from each department
chose recipients based on accomplishments in the classroom
and involvement on campus and in the community.
Glory Robinson, assistant dean of students, helped organize
the event and said she thinks its important to recognize
students who have been successful not only in academics
but also in community service.
Mills kept the atmosphere lighthearted when he joked that
he really respected students with a 4.0 GPA because it
took him three years to achieve that.
I thought it was a nice ceremony, said Katie
Goodyk, a senior fashion merchandising major. It
awarded great individuals at TCU.
