"Winning the Outstanding Student Award makes students aware of just how much they did during their time at Sterling College," said Tina Wohler, vice president of student life.
The Outstanding Student Award is given to seniors who exemplify outstanding academic achievement, leadership skills and involvement, and an enthusiastically Christian faith. They must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.4. The final choice is made through a vote by faculty and staff.
