Students rolled out of bed early Saturday morning to be recognized for their academic and philanthropic achievements at the annual “Who’s Who Among College Students” banquet.

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,” Mills said.

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 it’s 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.”
