SPARTANBURG - Dozens of Wofford College's recent graduates received awards from the college for academic excellence, leadership and citizenship. The college was unable to celebrate these students during the annual Honors Convocation in the spring, but their achievements and contributions to Wofford deserve recognition. Among those who received awards were:

Margaret Osteen of Sumter received The Senior Order of Gnomes. Osteen graduated with bachelor of arts degrees in accounting and finance, cum laude. The Senior Order of Gnomes recognizes students it considers to be the most prominent and influential members of the senior class.

The academic major awards are made by the faculty to seniors recommended by the major departments on the basis of academic achievement, character and intellectual promise. Some of the awards are named in honor of persons who have made significant contributions to the intellectual life of the college.

Andrew Reynolds of Sumter was elected president of Campus Union. He is a member of the class of 2021 and is majoring in biology.
