Outstanding First-Year Student Awards - Spring 2020

This year's Outstanding First-Year Student Awards were held virtually on April 30, 2020.

View a recording of the ceremony and a special message from EKU President David McFaddin. 

We honored two Outstanding First-Year Leaders and 57 Outstanding First-Year Students. Winners were nominated by their first-year seminar instructors based on such criteria as classroom performance, leadership potential, and contributions to an inclusive campus environment. They emerged as exceptional examples of the Colonel Community among the 2000+ first-year students in their cohort. Likely, this award will be the first of many. Join us in congratulating our winners!

All winners will receive a certificate and the opportunity to become a First-Year Leader
