Henderson State University’s Matt Locke Ellis College of Arts and Sciences recently honored students for their creative and academic accomplishments.
Instead of the customary awards ceremony held each spring, the students were recognized online.
“The circumstances in our world have altered nearly every aspect of our lives,” said Dr. Angela Boswell, Ellis College dean. “Yet even in the midst of these changes, our students continue to be outstanding, creative, and accomplished.
“Although we cannot gather together in a large crowd to recognize these amazing individuals, we still want to celebrate their achievements.”
Recipients of the Outstanding Creative Accomplishment awards are selected based on artistic accomplishment, research, or service to others. Each department within the Ellis College selects a student to receive the award.
Magnolia-area award recipients:
Chase McDonald of Camden, psychology; and Harley Hall of Emmet, sociology, human services, and criminal justice.
Each department within the Ellis College selects one student from each major to receive the Outstanding Graduating Senior Award. The students must have a cumulative 3.00 GPA or higher and have either graduated in the fall semester or be eligible to graduate in the spring semester.
David Thompson of Camden, chemistry; Justin Kennedy of Lewisville, instrumental music; De’Courtneyous Miller of Camden, vocal music education.
