On Sept. 21, President Scott D. Miller and Provost Timothy O’Rourke celebrated the “incredible achievements” of 77 Virginia Wesleyan students who earned a 4.0 grade point average for the spring 2016 semester. A special President’s List reception was held in the Shafer Room inside Boyd Dining Center, where students received a certificate in honor of their achievement. “Your stellar academic performance demonstrates just how seriously you approach your studies and the effort you have applied to your college experience,” said Dr. Miller. “These positive habits will serve you well in your future studies and in your future careers.” Established by President 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 nine semester hours of traditionally graded courses with no failing grades or incompletes. These individuals demonstrate a remarkable level of dedication to their academic pursuits and should be proud of this accomplishment.
