The Class of 2004 recently announced their Top 20 Outstanding Seniors. These students were selected based on their significant contributions during their matriculation at Plymouth State University in a wide range of activities, including academia, student government, the fine arts, residential life, athletics, recreation, Greek life, advocacy, and community service.

This award is quite an honor for those selected.”
