Praising their “splendid academic example,” Vice President for Academic Affairs & Kenneth R. Perry Dean of the College Timothy O’Rourke recently celebrated the success of approximately 130 Virginia Wesleyan students who achieved a 4.0 grade point average during the fall 2014 or spring 2015 semesters. Seventeen students attended a special “President’s List” reception held on Dec. 1 in the Pearce Hospitality Suite inside the Jane P. Batten S­­tudent Center. Students were awarded a certificate in recognition of their academic dedication and achievement. Established by Virginia Wesleyan College President Scott D. Miller, the President’s List recognizes students who earn a grade point average of 4.0 during a given semester. To qualify for this honor, students must have full-time status and have taken 12 semester hours of traditionally graded courses. These individuals demonstrate a remarkable level of dedication to their academic pursuits and should be proud of this accomplishment.
