Kathleen McCluskey-Fawcett Outstanding Contribution Award
Each year, we select one student to receive the Kathleen McCluskey-Fawcett Outstanding Contribution Award. The student receives a $1,000 award and has an opportunity to inspire the incoming first-year students at Honors Convocation. This year, those nominated will also be asked to submit a resume and a brief statement on a proposed address topic so we can learn a little more about them.
This award recognizes an Honors student who has demonstrated leadership, innovation, and engagement in the University Honors Program. Students who serve as hands-on role models for peers, develop new programs for current and future Honors students, and/or make a transformational mark on the University of Kansas as a whole, should be considered. The award winner gives a brief address at Honors Convocation in August. Past award winners are:
- Leigh Loving - 2014
- Gabby Murnan - 2015
- Rajvi Shah - 2016
- Aly Lange - 2017
- Rachel Atakpa - 2018
- Sam Steuart - 2019
- Lauren Jennings - 2020
Feel free to nominate multiple qualified students.
Nominations are due April 22nd. After receiving nominees’ materials, applications will be reviewed and an in-person interview will be scheduled for finalists. The award recipient winner will be notified by May 14th.
