Hurst Receives Honors from William Woods University

Zach Hurst of Jefferson City, Mo., was recognized for his
academic dedication and campus involvement during the Academic Convocation and
Co-Curricular Honors Banquet at William Woods University last month.

Hurst, who graduated in May, was recognized as Distinguished
Scholar in Management Information Systems. The faculty of various disciplines
at William Woods have the opportunity each spring to designate one graduating
senior as a Distinguished Scholar. 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.
Hurst also received a Student Alumni Council Outstanding
Senior Award. 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.
In addition, Hurst was one of 15 WWU students named to the
2012 edition of “Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges”
based on outstanding campus leadership.
A campus nominating committee and editors of the annual
directory chose the Who’s Who students based on academic achievement, service
to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities and potential for
continued success.
