The Wright State University Parents Association and the Wright State University Friends of the Libraries honored six graduating seniors as the Top Scholars for their colleges at a reception held May 18 in the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library.

Each student was personally selected by their college dean’s office from a list of seniors with GPAs of 3.6 or higher.

Each year since 1995, the Parents Association purchases a book in each scholar’s name in his or her subject area for addition to the University Libraries’ collections. The scholar is named on a bookplate and in the online catalog record for their book.
