Posted March 21, 2011
Presidential Medals will be presented at the Academic Honors Day on Saturday, April 9th. A medal will be awarded to one student in each school.
Members of the class of 2011 are eligible to receive the Medal. Candidates are expected to have demonstrated exemplary intellectual achievement and, in addition, distinction in some combination of the following: service to the community, contribution to the arts, enlargement of our global perspective, athletic fitness and achievement, leadership, and contribution to community discourse.
Self-nominations will be accepted. Nominees are required to submit a 200 – 500 word description of the way in which they meet the criteria listed above. Nominees are also required to submit one faculty recommendation in support of their self-nomination. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, March 25, 2011 and should be directed to my attention.
Recipients will be given a President’s Medal with the college seal on one side and Main Building on the other, with their name and the year. Recipients will be encouraged to wear the Medal during the Commencement Ceremony and to attend a luncheon with the Trustees before commencement.
Thank you for participation in this tradition-a public recognition of Rosemont’s commitment to academic excellence.
