Culver-Stockton College continued its tradition of honoring the accomplishments of students during the annual Honors Day Convocation Monday, May 13, 2013.
Dozens of students were awarded for overall academic achievement, outstanding performance within their major, academic competition and scholar-athlete rankings. Many of the awards have been established by or in memory of Culver-Stockton alumni. “This long-standing tradition of the college not only unites the student body as they honor their classmates and friends for achievements in the 2012 - 2013 academic year, but also represents the culmination of a year of hard work.
