PSU’s Best Students Recognized

February 24th, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
Plymouth State University’s highest achieving students were honored at the annual PSU Academic Excellence ceremony Feb. 16 at the Silver Center for the Arts. Students who have earned at least a 3.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) are invited to the annual event. PSU Provost Julie Bernier said the event celebrates those who deserve special distinction for their efforts.

“Every year we look forward to this event to honor the students who contribute so much to the academic life of the institution,” Bernier said. “We celebrate their achievements, but we also thank them for challenging us and teaching us every day.”

PSU’s Distinguished Teacher, Beth Cox, delivered the closing remarks and told the students that we look to those with knowledge and understanding of the world to become our leaders, our motivators and our decision makers.

“Inquiry and expansion of knowledge are required in our very expanding culture,” said Cox.

“You are a part of the global economy and you will be working in a global marketplace. Even sitting in Plymouth we are no longer bound by our geography, but can be reached through imagination, creativity and supportive technology.”

Approximately 160 students along with their families, friends and professors attended the ceremony to celebrate and honor these students for their academic excellence.
