Celebrating academic excellence.
Worcester State University champions academic excellence. Every year, with the support of the Worcester State Foundation and through the generosity of donors, we take time to celebrate the most accomplished students on our campus—and the faculty who played a part in their success—at the Academic Achievement Awards. Chosen by faculty, recipients display characteristics of leadership, scholarship, integrity, diversity, and community engagement.
Dear Student Achievers, Faculty, Staff, and Friends,
The Academic Achievement Awards celebrate the most accomplished students on our campus. Hard-working, motivated, and intelligent— these are the qualities that define the awardees.
Students often tell us that a faculty member— or two or three— were the keys to that success. Worcester State’s faculty are skilled at tapping into talents that students themselves do not necessarily see, bringing out their very best. Every one of the faculty members recognized by an academic achievement awardee represents many more who have done the same thing for other students. I thank our outstanding, dedicated faculty.
Many awards carry a donor’s name. We know that just one scholarship can make the difference between a student persisting toward graduation in four years, or not. I deeply appreciate our alumni and friends who commit financial resources to students.
To the students, faculty, and donors we celebrate today: You are the ones who make Worcester State great. And, to our honorees — congratulations!
Barry M. Maloney,
