The 16th annual Student Leadership Awards Banquet took place on April 18 in the Cantrell banquet hall.
The event honored students from housing and residence life to the Student Government Association and many organizations in between.
Award presenters were Chancellor Donna Henry and Vice Chancellor Rusty Necessary.
Although many awards involved SGA, Greek life and housing and residence life, these were not the only organizations recognized in the program. Many organizations on campus were represented including clubs such as Philosophy Club, Gaming Club and the Young Democrats.
After welcoming comments from Mikaela Logan, the Assistant Director of the C. Bascom Slemp Student Center, a buffet dinner was served followed by opening comments from Chancellor Henry. Chancellor Henry was followed by special recognitions and the awards presentations.
