 A total of 36 students were honored during 2nd annual awards program for the College of Arts and Sciences March 24 in Dillard Auditorium.

CAS faculty selected the students for four awards: Outstanding Students-Academics; Outstanding Students-Research; Outstanding Students-Service; and Most Improved Students. 

One student in each of the four categories was also given  the Dean's Award for Outstanding Achievement. 

In addition, the two departments offering graduate programs selected a student to receive a Top Graduate Student Award.

Dr. Charles Wesley Ford, the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, began the program with the opening remarks. 

 "I am positive that students who received these awards will continue to strive for excellence as they have already demonstrated by their progress in the areas for which they were recognized," Ford said.

"All students need to be aware of the opportunity to be recognized at a College of Arts and Sciences awards program."

Ford said that students should communicate with their professors, advisers, department chair and him. 

 "Students need to maintain good academic progress, participate in research, and participate in service activities at the departmental, college, and university levels."  

Chancellor Reaves said the students who were awarded set the bar for other students.

"Your achievements are nothing short of phenomenal," Reaves said.   

Ahmed Radwan, a chemistry major from Raleigh, was given an award in the category for Most Improved. He transferred to Winston-Salem State during his junior year.

 "I had a hard time settling in, so I started off with a low GPA," Radwan said. 

Radwan said Dr. John Merle informed him about the award, and it made him want to achieve more than what he has already done. 

"To achieve the highest awards and the highest success, you must sacrifice fun during college so when you're graduated, you will be able to have fun forever," Radwan said.

The following is the complete list of award recipients.
