Spring 2013 Student Recognition Awards Ceremony Honorees

Faculty and staff of the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton gathered on April 25 to honor distinguished students at this year’s Student Recognition Awards Ceremony. Students were joined by their families and peers as they were recognized for their achievements.

Earlier in the semester, students were nominated by faculty and staff for distinguished awards in their fields of study. Faculty members then selected those students who have worked to go above and beyond in both the classroom and college community.

“It is an honor to be able to give special recognition to this group of outstanding students at UACCM,” Chief Information Officer Mary Clark said. “These individuals represent the high-quality of students who attend our college, and this event is one of the highlights of the year for faculty and staff.”

Linda Zambrano, UACCM Business Instructor and ceremony committee member, added, “It is important to recognize the success of students and their contribution to the classroom and extracurricular activities. In addition, when one hears what has been written by faculty and staff members about the students, it affirms that we do good work and motivates us to provide an excellent learning environment.”

Among those honored at this year’s Student Recognition Awards Ceremony were 11 students from Conway County, 18 from Faulkner County, seven from Perry County, 14 from Pope County, three from Van Buren County, five from Yell County, and four from other counties.
