Honors College recognizes 48 graduates at Senior Dinner
On April 30th, the Honors College celebrated this semester's graduates at the Senior Dinner, alongside their family, friends, and faculty mentors. The event, which was held in the University Center Bluebonnet Ballroom, recognized 48 students who successfully completed the requirements of the Honors Degree. Dr. Timothy Henry, Assistant Dean of the Honors College, presented each graduate with the Honors medallion and stole.
Dr. Omomayowa Olawoyin (Class of 2015), addressed the soon-to-be Honors alumni, reminding them to "live a little," to "always keep the fire in our bellies," and that "challenges are inevitable."
This semester's graduates will begin their careers with employers such as Lockheed Martin, Goldman Sachs, and Texas Health Resources. Some will pursue internships or co-ops with organizations such as NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Ernst & Young, and KPMG. Others will begin graduate or professional school at institutions including Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, McGovern Medical School, and UT Austin.
"Our Honors College graduates represent the most dedicated, highest achieving students within the University," said Dr. Henry. "We celebrate their accomplishments, along with their families, friends, and mentors, and wish for them the brightest of future endeavors."
