Columbia Resident Receives Awards at William Woods University

Molly Borgmeyer, the daughter of Les and Ann Borgmeyer of Columbia and a senior at William Woods University, received several prestigious awards at WWU April 18.

She was proclaimed the Distinguished Scholar in Graphic Design during the academic convocation and she received the Cockrell Award at the university’s co-curricular honors banquet. She was also named to the 2007 edition of “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.”

She was Student Assembly chair and founder and chair of GAMMA (Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol). She is a member of Order of Omega Greek honorary, Campus Crusade for Christ and the concert and lecture committee. She has been on the Dean’s List for four years.
