With so many students from the college displaying their growth not only as students but as people of the community, Dean Lance Nail expressed the pride that both he and the Rawls receive from knowing how students are impacting the world for the better.

Their recognition for their contributions as campus leaders is not only a recognition of their individual achievements, but is also a collective recognition of the Rawls College culture," Nail said. "Our Who's Who students exemplify this culture and represent the best of the Rawls College. And the large number of awardees demonstrates the support of the faculty and staff who view their students' success as their own."
