The university is looking for outstanding seniors who graduated in December 2011 or are scheduled to graduate in May or August 2012 to consider for the 2012 Derryberry Award.
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.
This award was established in honor of the late Dr. Everett Derryberry who retired in 1974 after 34 years as president of the university.
Again this year, nomination materials are available on the TTU webpage. A blank nomination form and a template to use as a guide when completing the form can be found at: http://www.tntech.edu/studentaffairs/derryberryaward/.
An ad hoc committee will review all nominations, interview finalists, and select the 2012 recipient.
