April 17, 2012

Howard College will honor its top students at the annual awards convocation set for 7 p.m. today in Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

Students will be recognized for their achievements in a variety of areas, including academics, leadership and citizenship.

The top honor to be presented tonight is the President's Award, given to the college student who excels in several areas of college life.

The President's Award is voted on by faculty and staff, with College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks having the final say, officials said.

The American Legion Award will be presented to a male and female student who have shown outstanding leadership, character and citizenship qualities during their time at Howard College. Those students also are selected by a vote from college employees.

Also to be presented is the All-Texas Academic Award, given to the top students from Phi Beta Kappa, the college's academic honors fraternity.
Other awards will be presented to students named to Who's Who Among American Junior Colleges, the Dean's Honor Roll (3.25 grade point average while taking 12 or more semester hours) and President's Honor Roll (4.0 GPA while taking 12 or more semester hours).

Top students in each college department also will be recognized.
