Senior Awards

 

The Julia McCulloch-Smith and Delmer Dewey awards are WOU’s highest honors for graduating seniors.  The first is awarded to the woman who best exemplifies academic accomplishment, campus leadership, and community/institutional service.  The second is awarded to a similarly high-achieving male graduate.  Both recipients deliver formal speeches to students and parents at WOU’s annual commencement ceremony.

WOU Honors Students have won 9 out of the last 15 Julia McCulloch-Smith awards and 4 out of the last 6 Delmer Dewey awards.  Congratulations, seniors!
