Hard work pays off! Faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences and families from around Kentucky gathered Friday, September 26, to celebrate students who excelled in their studies. Five GWS majors made the Dean’s List and were honored at a bountiful reception in the Ballroom of the Student Center. They were: Rebecca Moore; Alexandra Adams; Andrea Marie Stephenson; Destiny Simone Commodore; and Rockia Kiara Harris.
“We are so proud of our Dean’s List students,” said GWS director of undergraduate studies, Carol Mason, at the reception. “Our majors cultivate a truly interdisciplinary perspective and are encouraged to think through a variety of theoretical frameworks, different methodologies, and texts from both the humanities and social sciences. When they make the Dean’s List, they prove they are well-rounded thinkers.”
Alex Adams, a senior, said she attended the reception because she had worked hard and deserved it. She received applause, a letter from the Dean, and the intangible sense of pride shared among fellow students and faculty who were there to cheer. From all the foodstuffs available, it’s fitting that she pulled a cupcake – just desserts for a job well done, a symbol of the sweet fruits of intellectual labor.
Congratulations to all Dean’s List recipients! See you at the next reception!
