Outstanding Graduating Senior Awards

Until 2019, when the gendered designations were retired, the Julia McCulloch-Smith and Delmer Dewey awards were WOU’s highest honors for graduating women and men, respectively. Starting in 2019 these awards were reclassified as the top-two WOU grads, irrespective of gender. Both recipients deliver formal speeches at WOU’s annual commencement ceremony.

At least one honors student has received this distinction in 13 out of the last 15 years. Congratulations to all students on their accomplishments!
