National College Senior Honor Society- Penetralia Chapter

Senior Recognition Award



The President’s Outstanding Senior Recognition Awards are sponsored annually by the UM Penetralia Chapter of Mortar Board.   This Senior Recognition Award is presented to outstanding graduating seniors in academic areas and University-recognized organizations.  Students are chosen on the basis of academic performance in addition to devotion to the excellence of their departments and The University of Montana.  One senior from each department and each organization will be honored with an engraved medallion and award certificate at the ceremony held traditionally on the Friday before Commencement.

Students are nominated by their department or ASUM-recognized organization in the spring based on the following criteria:

1)  The student must graduate within the 2013-2014 academic year.  (Graduation papers filed covering the Fall 2013-Summer 2014 year)  Note:  Fall 2014 meets next year’s criteria.

2)  The student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

3)  The student must demonstrate a commitment to his or her academic discipline or student organization through professional development, leadership and service. 

Applications for nominations are now available. If you would like to know more information about the Senior Recognition program, please contact Kim Parrow and Jacy Suenram by email at
