Nye Outstanding Student Awards

The Nye Outstanding Student Awards are given to one Junior and one Senior student each year. Award winners are selected by the Honors staff from among current Honors students and are chosen based on GPA and activity within the Honors Program. The awards are presented at the spring Nye Graduation Banquet, all of which are made possible by the generous support of the Ralph Nye Charitable Foundation.
