100 Senior Honorary for the Class of 2009
December 01, 2008
Members of the 100 Senior Honorary, a partnership between the Student Alumni Association (SAA) and the university, are chosen by Emory faculty, alumni, staff, administrators, and, most importantly, fellow students. Students named to the 100 Senior Honorary are passionate in their devotion to Emory, and their contributions cover a remarkably broad range of activities: academics, athletics, volunteerism (both on campus and off). The 100 Senior Honorary inducts 100 outstanding seniors at Emory each year that have demonstrated exemplary leadership, dedication, involvement, service, and citizenship.
The Emory Alumni Association received more faculty nominations and more business school nominations than in the past. The selection committee also included representatives from Goizueta and Oxford. The selection committee reviewed more than 430 nominations for 257 individuals on November 10th in order to select the 100 most outstanding members of the Class of 2009. These numbers are a 100% increase in individual nominees and a 200% increase in nominations over last year. This year 13 oxford continuees were chosen.
Members of the 100 Senior Honorary were inducted in a formal ceremony on November 20. President Wagner led the induction and was joined by Dr. Gary Hauk, Dr. Santa Ono, Dean Bridget Riordan, and Allison Dykes. One of the secret societies at Emory, the Paladin Society, hosted a reception after the ceremony to honor the individuals.
