PHC Who's Who award recipients

Patrick Henry students are often recognized for their intellectual rigor, strong work ethic and high standards. This month, the faculty honored 35 especially outstanding upperclassmen students with the Who’s Who Among American College Students award.

Who’s Who is a national program established in 1945 by H. Pettus Randall II to recognize academic achievement on college campuses. More than 2,842 schools participate nationwide. On each individual campus, the faculty chooses outstanding students based on their academic performance, leadership, and integrity.

At PHC, the Who’s Who candidates are chosen from a list of the top 50 students with the highest GPAs, with a minimum requirement of a 3.25 GPA. The students are judged academically on the basis of classroom interaction and initiative taken to learn beyond the class. The faculty then considers the students’ leadership roles both in campus organizations and in church and community involvement. Finally, they look for excellence in the students’ pursuits outside of the classroom.

The Who’s Who awards were presented in chapel last Monday by Dr. Steven Hake and Dr. Mark Mitchell, with much cheering among the nominee’s classmates. Besides the campus recognition, the recipients receive the chance to be entered in a drawing among other campus for a nationwide Who’s Who Scholarship.
