Student Achievement & Leadership Breakfast

SA&L WinnersThe Universities at Shady Grove (USG) honored 28 graduating seniors from undergraduate programs at USG for their outstanding academic achievement, drive to excel outside of the classroom, and commitment to serving the community during the USG 11th Annual Student Achievement and Leadership Breakfast on April 3, 2015.

“These 28 students are among the best and brightest at USG and represent the next generation of leaders in our region,” said Dr. Stewart Edelstein, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs for the University System of Maryland and Executive Director of USG. “USG is proud to serve these outstanding students, who understand the value of both academic success and community engagement. We know they are going to have bright futures ahead of them.”

Outstanding seniors from undergraduate degree programs offered at USG, who have demonstrated academic excellence, received the Student Academic Achievement Award. Award recipients were selected on the basis of grade point average, participation in internships and honor societies, and contributions to their program of study.

Student Leadership and Service Awards also were presented to two seniors who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, service and dedication to the Universities at Shady Grove and the community at large. These recipients were selected based on participation in extracurricular activities, community service and commitment to their fellow students.Chancellor-Kirwan

William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, served as the keynote speaker for the event. He instilled words of wisdom on the qualities that strong leaders possess and congratulated students on their achievements, acknowledging the fact that they are our leaders of tomorrow.
