Top students of 2021 honored with Deans' Awards and President's Medal
May 14, 2021
Students honored with the annual Dean's Awards represent the best of Sacramento State. They are students who excel not only in the classroom but beyond it, making a difference in their families, the campus community, and beyond.
Representing each of Sacramento State’s seven colleges, they are chosen by professors and administrators each year as the University’s top graduates.
The President's Medal is awarded to one of the seven Dean's Award winners, presented annually by President Robert S. Nelsen.
This year’s winners have excelled not only academically, but in the face of unprecedented challenges that came with studying and learning during a global pandemic. With resilience and determination, they reached the finish line.
