CEHS graduates earn Honors Program awards
25 May 2023
Six graduating seniors from the College of Education and Human Sciences earned awards from the University Honors Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The students were selected from among the more than 300 Honors graduates during the 2022-23 academic year.
The Outstanding Honors Leadership Award recognizes Honors graduates who have made the most significant and lasting impact on the Honors Program through their leadership. This year’s award was given to Keegan Oldani and Mairead Stotz, both CEHS students.
The Honors Program collaborated with Nebraska’s undergraduate colleges to recognize an Outstanding Honors graduate from each college. The students were selected based on their contributions to, and involvement with both the Honors Program and their respective colleges. The Outstanding Honors Graduate from CEHS was William Wilton.
CEHS students also received three of the four awards for outstanding leadership within one of the Honors Program’s registered student organizations: Honors Ambassadors, Honors Program Student Advisory Board, Honors Peer Mentor Leaders and the Dr. Michael W. Combs Honors Scholars.
