USC Salkehatchie 2023 Academic Awards


USC Salkehatchie congratulates the 2023 Academic Awards winners for their educational accomplishments.  These awards provide opportunities to recognize students who meet high standards of academic excellence and those who have given their best efforts, often overcoming obstacles to their learning.

“These students worked diligently throughout the semester to succeed and move forward toward their educational and professional goals. Academic success is certainly important, but when the recipients of these awards are selected, other personal and professional attributes that make a well-rounded student and member of the community are considered,” Dean April Cone said.
