Education: Whitener Medals presented at Catawba graduation
The recipients of the Whitener Medals were announced at the awards convocation but were actually presented during Catawba’s May 9 graduation exercise. They are Jill Archambault of Glens Falls, N.Y., and Jared Kenish of Glassboro, N.J.
Named in honor of the late Dr. Edgar Whitener of High Point who served as president of the Catawba Board of Trustees from 1925-44, these awards are presented annually to the man and woman in the graduating class who combine in themselves, in the highest degree, the equalities of character, leadership and scholarship. Selection is made by the faculty from the three men and three women who have received the highest number of votes in an election in which only members of the junior and senior class may vote.
