Three students from the School of Medicine were among this year’s graduating students recognized as Spring 2013 UMKC Vice Chancellor’s Honor Recipients for their excellence in both academic achievement and service to the campus community.
Melony Chakrabarty, nominated by Connie Beachler; Mena Kerolus, nominated by Agostino Molteni, M.D., Ph.D.; and Ashika Odhav, nominated by Kathy Kinder, M.D., received this year’s Vice Chancellor’s recognition.
Students are selected for maintaining high scholastic performace, while actively participating in University and community activities outside the classroom. The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management takes nominations each semester from faculty and staff across the campus for the award.
The Honor Recipient program was started in 1975 by Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Richard Hoover.
