This year we embarked on reimagining Honors Convocation after many scholarships were restructured. This change led us to think critically about the purpose for Honors Convocation: to celebrate students’ academic achievement and outstanding accomplishments. Last year, we debuted another event to recognize students with our first ever Student Leadership Luncheon. This event focused on the work student groups do on campus and our amazing student leaders. We saw an opportunity to combine and elevate the profile of both events to celebrate students’ work inside and outside of the classroom with this year’s Honors & Leadership Convocation on May 5.

We are asking for your assistance nominating the Student Leader of the Year, Student Group Recognition and Adult Student of the Year, which we have decided to bring back as recognition and not a scholarship.

All nominations are due by March 24. We recognize this is a tight deadline; please know that we have worked diligently to be able to continue to offer an event recognizing our students this year on a shorter time frame and under unique circumstances.

Faculty: To streamline the process, your department chair and office manager have the link to nominate a student for academic area awards. Please connect with them for additional information!

We are grateful to everyone who helped reimagine this year’s event and look forward to the celebration. Thank you for all you do to support NMC and our students!
