Sweet Briar Honors Committee awards 2008-2009 Honors Scholarships

| April 30, 2008

The Honors Committee has selected the Honors Scholarship recipients for the 2008-2009 academic year.

The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize and encourage academic excellence. The award recognizes high standards and exceptional performance in academic courses of study, achievement reflected in the cumulative grade point average, and in the balance, variety and level of courses undertaken.

In addition, the Honors Scholarship seeks to recognize and encourage academic leadership both inside and outside of the classroom. In selecting the Honors Scholars from each class, the Honors Committee carefully evaluates students’ essays, letters of recommendation and academic records.
