Who’s Who List Announced

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner- Webb University is pleased to announce that 35 students have been named to the 2012-13 “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.”  Each year, more than 2,800 schools across the United States and the District of Columbia nominate students for selection of this prestigious award.

For consideration into the Who’s Who Program students must have an outstanding grade point average (GPA), must participate in school organizations or leadership activities, must be involved in the community, must exhibit future leadership ability or potential, and any other requirements that the student’s member institution requires.  In order to be considered for the program, students have to be nominated by a faculty member of a student’s college or university.

The Who’s Who program has been recognizing students since 1934 and is one of the highest academic honors that anyone can receive.  Students receiving acceptance in to the program receive a certificate acknowledging their accomplishments.  The program also provides accepted students the opportunity to win 1 of 3 scholarships that will be awarded in May.  Students also had the chance to submit a biography highlighting accomplishments or other important milestones.  All winners will have their name in an official Who’s Who book and those who choose to submit a biography will have their submission published in that book.
