Nominations being accepted for 2014 Derryberry Award
This is to solicit your help in identifying outstanding seniors on our campus who could be considered for the 2014 Derryberry Award. These students would encompass individuals who graduated in December 2013 and those who are scheduled to graduate in May or August 2014. This prestigious award is presented in accordance with the following guidelines:
A plaque and cash award are presented annually to a graduating senior who has exhibited scholastic attainment arising out of moral and intellectual integrity; successful campus activity where participation indicates a commitment to good citizenship, interest in one's fellow person, and instincts for leadership; and physical vigor as shown by fondness for and success in sports--all of which demonstrate potential for future service and effective leadership in American society.
As you may know, this award was established in honor of the late Dr. Everett Derryberry who retired in 1974 after 34 years as president of the university.
