Archuleta receives major awards at WWU

Ilana Archuleta of Fulton, Mo., received several major
awards, including the Cockrell Award, at William Woods University April 24.

The Cockrell Award is presented to the graduating senior who
has participated in a variety of campus activities, serving as an officer or
chair and who has held membership in honorary groups. The student must
exemplify outstanding campus citizenship, contribute to society, exhibit
loyalty to the university and its policies and have a genuine regard for others
in personal relationships.
Archuleta was also one of 14 students selected for the 2013
edition of “Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges.” A
campus nominating committee and editors of the annual directory chose the students
based on academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in
extracurricular activities and potential for continued success.
By being listed in “Who’s Who,” she joins an elite group of
students from more than 2,300 institutions of higher learning in all 50 states.
Outstanding students have been honored in the annual directory since it was
first published in 1934.
In addition, Archuleta was named a Distinguished Scholar in Business
Administration. Distinguished Scholar awards are designated to graduating
seniors by the faculty of various disciplines at William Woods each spring. A
minimum grade point average of 3.4 is required, but the faculty may consider
other relevant academic factors and variables in the selection process.


Archuleta was also named an Outstanding Senior by the Student
Alumni Council. The Outstanding Student Awards are the only awards at William
Woods University bestowed on students by the nomination and vote of other
students. Nominees must demonstrate academic achievement, campus and community
involvement and leadership.
Archuleta has maintained a 3.79 GPA throughout her college
career, while remaining involved in a number of campus activities, including
Student Alumni Council, Chi Omega, Alpha Mu Gamma foreign language honor
society, Multicultural Affairs Club and DECA. She was also a University
Ambassador and a member of Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honorary, Panhellenic
Executive Board and Order of Omega Greek honor society.
