CANTON, Mo. — Lei Alena Dagat, sophomore nursing major from Centerville, was among students recognized during the annual Honors Day Convocation held May 13 at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Mo. Dagat received the the Mahan Prizes in Creative Writing-Short Story Award.
Dozens of students were awarded for overall academic achievement, outstanding performance within their major, academic competition and scholar-athlete rankings.
Many of the awards have been established by or in memory of Culver-Stockton alumni/ae.
“This long-standing tradition of the College not only unites the student body as they honor their classmates and friends for achievements in the 2013 — 2014 academic year, but also represents the culmination of a year of hard work. I can think of no finer way to end another academic year on “the Hill’ than to pay tribute to members of our student body,” commented C-SC President Richard Valentine.
Members of the class of 2014 will receive their diplomas during the Commencement Ceremony, held Saturday, May 17 at 9:30 a.m. on the campus of Culver-Stockton College.
