Zach Hurst of Jefferson City, Mo., was recognized for his academic dedication and campus involvement during the Academic Convocation and Co-Curricular Honors Banquet at William Woods University last month.
Hurst, who graduated in May, was recognized as Distinguished Scholar in Management Information Systems. The faculty of various disciplines at William Woods have the opportunity each spring to designate one graduating senior as a Distinguished Scholar. A minimum grade point average of 3.4 is required, but the faculty may consider other relevant academic factors and variables in the selection process.
Hurst also received a Student Alumni Council Outstanding Senior Award. The Outstanding Student Awards are the only awards at William Woods University bestowed on students by the nomination and vote of other students. Nominees must demonstrate academic achievement, campus and community involvement and leadership.
In addition, Hurst was one of 15 WWU students named to the 2012 edition of “Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges” based on outstanding campus leadership.
A campus nominating committee and editors of the annual directory chose the Who’s Who students based on academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities and potential for continued success.
