Honors Convocation recognizes students, faculty, staff

The 79th annual Delta Mu Sigma Honors Convocation at Penn State DuBois recognized outstanding students, faculty, and staff members on April 20 in the campus' Hiller Auditorium. Awards at the Honors Convocation recognize students for a wide range of accomplishments, from academic excellence, to overcoming hardships to succeed.  Members of the staff and faculty were celebrated for their commitment to supporting students and for their service to the campus and community. The event is organized each year by members of the Delta Mu Sigma Honors Society.

Delta Mu Sigma Chair Julia Test welcomed students, and their friends and families for the evening saying, "Every year we gather to honor the students of Penn State DuBois who excel in academics, leadership, service, and community involvement within our campus. This is the night in which faculty and staff are able to award students who have truly shined in their classes, clubs and organizations. It is also the time in which students are able to applaud the faculty and staff for their excellence and dedication to the campus."
