Two outstanding senior students were honored during chapel-convocation recently for academic excellence by graduating with perfct a 4.0 grade point average.

Following graduation, Good will move to Washington D.C. where she plans to pursue a career in sustainable agriculture. Both Dr. Dr. Kimberly Lyle-Ippolito and Michael Bailey (Good’s biology professors) believe Good is a conscientious, hard-working biology major who really thinks about the implications of what she studies.
Hinkley will move to Cincinnati, Ohio where she will take a position with Procter & Gamble. She plans to earn an MBA while working at Procter & Gamble and then eventually work toward a doctorate. Katherine looks forward to getting involved with a church and a ministry to the Hispanic community of Cincinnati.
Business Professor Mike Wiese said, “Katherine is very special to me. Yes, she has a 4.0 GPA, won the most prestigious personal honor nationally offered by Students in Free Enterprise [SIFE] and has a great job lined up with Proctor and Gamble. But more importantly, this is a young person who seeks God's heart.”
