Students achieving academic excellence in and embodying the spirit of their chosen majors were recognized yesterday during Flagler Collegeâ€™s Honors Day awards ceremony, organized by the collegeâ€™s Student Success Committee.
Twenty-seven students representing the various majors were presented the â€œDistinguished Majorâ€ award by professors who personally taught and knew them.
â€œWeâ€™re here to celebrate Flaglerâ€™s best and brightest,â€ said Dr. Alan Woolfolk, vice president of academic affairs and dean of the faculty. â€œThey exemplify what higher education at Flagler is all about.â€
From juggling internships with schoolwork, earning regional and national accolades and servings as mentors in the classroom, the recognized students clearly represented achievement.
