Distinguished Group of Students Named President’s Fellows for 2013-2014

Seniors Recognized for Outstanding Work in Their Respective Majors

Thirty-one Trinity seniors, each of whom has compiled an exemplary academic record during their first three years at the College, have been named President’s Fellows for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The Society of President’s Fellows was founded in 1974 to recognize outstanding student achievement in their respective majors. The Fellows, who have been nominated by their departments or programs for this honor, meet four times each academic year with President James F. Jones, Jr., and various faculty members to discuss topics of interest. Their final meeting is a dinner in April.

In 1981-82, eight Fellows initiated The Trinity Papers, which is an annual journal of undergraduate scholarship. Six to 10 papers are typically selected for publication.
