We're down to the last week of the academic year. On Monday we had the senior awards. A range of awards were made, including departmental as well as top honors.
I also reinstituted the best all-around award, now named for Dr. William Sutton '53. The first 2 recipients were named Monday. Rachel Williams from Baton Rouge is also the salutatorian with a 4.0. She will be enrolling in Vanderbilt this fall for graduate school.
The second is Jerome Bailey from Houston, who will be attending Columbia University to study journalism. Both of these students were involved in a wide array of activities as well as maintained strong academic performance. Each received a medallion as well as $1,000.
