Alumni Association Awards Seniors
Six recent graduates of Central Methodist University have been deemed "outstanding" by CMU faculty and staff.
The six were named recipients of the 2011-12 CMU Alumni Association Outstanding Senior Awards, according to Alan Marshall, director of development and alumni programs.
They include Brad Dudenhoffer, a chemistry major from Columbia; Jacob Heppner, a mathematics major from Mansfield; Gabriela Hernandez, a nursing major from Delicias Chihuauaha, Mexico; Khobic Johnson, a music education major from Fayette; Eldar Rizvanov, a political science major from Sterlitamak, Russia; and Kayla Yount, a business major from Overland Park, Kan.
Each year the CMU Advancement Office seeks nominations from faculty and staff for the award. It was established by the University's Alumni Association in 1972 to "recognize seniors who have made outstanding contributions" to CMU and "who are believed to have exceptional promise for the future," Marshall said.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to submit names of graduating seniors based on college and community involvement, above average academic performance, leadership qualities, and concern for humankind and society. The top six nominees in terms of votes are selected.
In addition, Heppner was named the Class of 2012 representative to the Alumni Board, as selected by his classmates. Heppner will be asked to attend the three Board meetings in the coming year and represent the interests of CMU's most recent graduates, Marshall said.
