Seven students were recognized as honors scholar graduates for Spring 2018.

Honors scholar medals were awarded at a pre-commencement ceremony, May 11, in the Student Union Building Alumni Room. Truman’s Honors Scholar Program offers outstanding students the opportunity to select rigorous courses in the liberal arts and sciences component of their degree programs.

The honor is awarded to graduating seniors who have completed five approved courses, with at least one from each of the four areas of mathematics, natural science, social science and humanities. They must achieve a grade point average of at least 3.5 in those courses and an overall grade point average of 3.5.
