BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner-Webb University is pleased to announce that 35 students have been named to the 2015-16 “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.” Each year, more than 2,800 schools around the nation nominate students for the prestigious award.

For consideration into the Who’s Who Program, students must have an outstanding grade point average (GPA), participate in school organizations or leadership activities, be involved in the community, and exhibit future leadership ability or potential. Students are nominated for Who’s Who consideration by a faculty or staff member.

The Who’s Who program has been recognizing students since 1934 and is one of the highest academic honors that anyone can receive.  Students accepted into the program receive a certificate acknowledging their accomplishments. The program provides accepted students with scholarship opportunities. Selected students will have their name and biographical information in an official Who’s Who book.
