Clark State Community College will hold Student Recognition Night at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 15 at the Hollenbeck Bayley Creative Arts and Conference Center, 275 South Limestone Street in downtown Springfield.
More than 40 students will be honored at the annual event that recognizes students who have exhibited excellence inside and outside of the classroom.
"Student Recognition Night is an annual event to recognize and celebrate outstanding students in a variety of areas on campus,” said Nina Wiley, dean of enrollment services at Clark State. “Faculty are encouraged to nominate outstanding students in their programs.”
Wiley said students can be nominated for many reasons including academic excellence, as a student who has persevered or as an outstanding work-study. Faculty and staff student organization advisors are also asked to nominate members who have gone above and beyond.
“We have many students who excel,” said Wiley. “It’s a great event to recognize them.”
A photograph and brief biography about each student will be included in the event program, and each recipient will receive a medal to wear at graduation.
