Wright State Libraries honor graduating students as 2024 Top Scholars

Seven Top Scholars were awarded a book in their subject area that is now a permanent part of the Wright State University Libraries’ collection.

Seven students in Wright State University’s class of 2024 were honored as the 2024 Top Scholars for their colleges.

The Top Scholars awards are presented annually to a graduating student from each college and the Lake Campus. Top Scholars are selected by the dean of their college.

The University Libraries and Provost Amy Thompson recognized the recipients during a ceremony in April.

A book is purchased and added to the University Libraries’ permanent collections in honor of each Top Scholar. The subjects of the books are chosen from within the student’s major.

Wright State University and the Friends of the Libraries fund the award, which is now in its 30th year.
