Each spring, university-wide, competitive achievement awards are given to only a dozen or so of the most accomplished and impressive undergraduates at UNH. This year, five liberal arts students won awards.

The award ceremony to honor these students is Tuesday, May 8, at 3 p.m. in Holloway Commons. All are welcome to attend.

The Erskine Mason Award went to George Adams, a music major from Holden, MA. This award is given to that senior who is distinguished for the most consistent progress and achievement.

The Jere A. Chase Service Award went to Andrea B. Capodilupo, a political science and justice studies dual major from Beverly, MA. This award honors the graduating senior who has displayed outstanding student service to the university.

One of three UNH Awards of Excellence went to Alexander S. Foss, a communication and business administration dual degree candidate from Franconia, NH. This award recognizes excellence in leadership, scholarship, and citizenship.

The Hood Achievement Prize went to Daniel P. Bishop, a political science major from Pelham, NH. This award is given to that senior man who shows the greatest promise through character, scholarship, leadership, and usefulness to humanity.

One of four Parent’s Association awards went to Keely Maguire, a political science major from Georgetown, MA. This award recognizes students who have shown an understanding and appreciation of the value of a university education, and who have accepted the responsibility to share their education to better the community in which they live.

Congratulations all!
