Each Spring, the Catholic University community gathers to honor some of the many outstanding contributions made by students to the betterment of the university. This highest university award is presented to a graduating senior who has demonstrated prominent leadership, outstanding scholarship, and who exemplifies the highest ideals of Christianity. Nominees should have a G.P.A. of 3.8 or better. They should have distinguished themselves in a successful leadership role(s) in various activities throughout their career at CUA. It should be clear that, through their involvement in one or more organizations or activities, they have made a positive impact on the community and that the organization/activity would not have been as successful without the vision and guidance of this individual.
