Nine Virginia State University Honors Program students and the director of VSU’s Honors Program, Dr. Daniel Roberts, recently participated in the Virginias Collegiate Honors Council’s (VCHC) Annual Conference. VSU students gave oral and poster presentations at the conference.
At the conference, Lynn Holloway, a senior, biology major from Hampton, VA, was recognized for having given one of the five outstanding oral presentations. Kayla Harris-Fontaine, a junior, mass communications major from Capitol Heights, MD, was re-elected by her peers to serve as the Student Representative of four-year public universities. Roberts was elected by the heads of honors programs from Virginia and West Virginia as President of VCHC for 2015-2016. Dr. W. Weldon Hill, Academic Vice President and Provost, said “I could not be more pleased with the successes of our Honors Program students. Our students continue to be recognized for their academic acumen and leadership skills. Dr. Roberts continues to motivate our students to outstanding achievements.” Under Roberts’ leadership, VSU hosted the VCHC conference in 2014. Dr. Hill noted “we are extremely pleased to have a VSU representative heading such an important organization.”
