Each student was sponsored by a faculty member. These sponsors included: Ronald Coleman, Shannon Datwyler, Scott Farrand, Ann Blanton, Doug Rice, James Miranda, and Benjamin Gherman.
Let us congratulate these students on this great accomplishment and let their academic success motivate the students of Sac State to work hard, earn high marks, and apply for this prestigious scholarship.
