2022 Chambliss Student Academic Achievement Awards

Kutztown University presented the Chambliss Student Academic Achievement Awards to six accomplished students Friday, April 8, Old Main Georgian Room. Students who received awards were nominated by staff and faculty members for meeting one or more of the six areas of achievement: successfully completed research projects, high-quality original artwork, high-quality artistic performances (music, chorus, drama, etc.), original writing in literature or meritorious writing in other fields, noteworthy achievements in athletics, and outstanding service to the KU community. The Academic Achievement Awards were established in 2004 through a donation provided by Dr. Carlson Chambliss, KU professor of astronomy from 1970-2003. The purpose of the awards is to recognize the exceptional individual achievements of a select group of KU graduating seniors. Specially-designed coin medallions of gold, silver and copper were presented to the students.
