When the Citation class of 2023 entered the University of Maryland, they were already adjusting to a rapidly changing world being constantly reshaped by the Covid-19 global pandemic. One thing that didn’t change – their commitment to excellence in the classroom. All who successfully completed the requirements of their respective Scholars program received their official Scholars citation. But there were some that went above and beyond the expectations, leaving a lasting impact on the community.
Members of the Scholars class of 2023 were honored on October 26, 2023, at the annual College Park Scholars Citation Awards ceremony. Forty-four total upperclassmen, two from each program, were chosen by their respective program directors for outstanding achievement and outstanding citizenship. These students not only exemplified academic excellence but also were engaged community members impacting College Park and beyond.
Nine additional students were selected to receive some of Scholars’ highest honors: six Founders Circle Awards plus the Meghan Price Scholarship for Leadership and Public Service, the Martha and Ira Berlin Legacy Fund Scholarship, and the Rebecca Basena Kampi Memorial Scholarship.
(Not present at the ceremony: Sean Kim, Arts - Martha & Ira Berlin Legacy Fund Scholarship; Caroline Thorne, International Studies - Rebecca Basena Kampi Memorial Scholarship; Makda Bekele, Environment, Technology and Economy - Phyllis Peres Award for Study Abroad; and Mars Brusgraff, Arts - Beth and John Pattison Award for Creativity)
