UNL recognizes Distinguished Scholars


UNL recognized top Nebraska high school seniors for their academic excellence Nov. 2 at the 2010 Distinguished Scholars Recognition Dinner in Lincoln.

These distinguished scholars have demonstrated a high level of ability and a strong commitment to superior performance in academics as indicated by their class ranking, combined with their ACT or SAT test scores. All Nebraska National Merit semifinalists, National Hispanic Scholars and National Achievement Scholars were also recognized.

The Distinguished Scholars Recognition Dinner at the Embassy Suites Hotel culminated a full day of events for the scholars. The Distinguished Scholars Day gives students the opportunity to learn more about the academic programs offered at UNL through the University Honors Program. Students and parents learned about the numerous academic opportunities for students at UNL ranging from research to international experiences to campus resources. All students interacted in small seminar classes on subjects including English, biochemistry, computer science, biological systems engineering, chemical engineering, journalism and chemistry.
