One student from each department in the College of Engineering was selected as the Outstanding Senior. Rachel Holmer was the student chosen for the Industrial Engineering Department, and then from those students an overall College Outstanding Senior is selected, and Rachel was selected for the college honor.

Students selected as Outstanding Seniors have excelled academically, professionally and personally throughout their time at the University of Arkansas. They are leaders within their departments and in many organizations at the university and in the community.
Also honored at the event, as a First Ranked Senior Scholar was Anna Hudgeons. The University of Arkansas recognizes First Ranked Senior Scholars as students who have achieved a 4.0 on all course work completed at the U of A.

Industrial Engineering students recognized as Senior Scholars were Olivia Goss, Rachel Holmer and Anthony Paul Woods. The distinction of Senior Scholar is granted to students who have achieved a perfect 4.0 on all course work, including some transfer work.

The Graduate School offers two levels of competitive merit-based fellowships to provide financial support to outstanding incoming doctoral students. Qualified graduate students must be nominated for these doctoral fellowships by the academic unit or department that has also agreed to sponsor the accompanying assistantship.

Industrial Engineering students identified as Distinguished Doctoral Fellows for 2017 and 2018 include: Winthrop Harvey and Jose Carlos Hernandez Azucena. Recognized with the honor of Doctoral Academy Fellow was: Oliver Kwizera.

Congratulations to all the student award winners! These outstanding students have distinguished themselves academically, professionally and personally during their time at the University of Arkansas!
