Midway University Confers Degrees and Presents Awards at Commencement Ceremony

At the May 15 Commencement Ceremony, Midway University conferred degrees on 285 graduates who completed their coursework over the last academic year. This graduating class included individuals from 27 states and six countries. During the ceremony, two awards were presented by the University – the President’s Award and the Midway Woman Award.

Hannah Waroway (South Lyon, Michigan), President’s Award – The President’s Award is the highest honor bestowed upon a Midway University graduate. This award is presented to a graduate who has demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, and service. The recipient of this award must have maintained at least a 3.75 grade point average. Hannah Waroway graduated with dual concentrations in Equine Management and Equine Rehabilitation and a minor in Business Administration. Despite her challenging academic load, she has maintained a 4.0 GPA earning her spots on the Dean’s List and Academic Honor roll for eight consecutive semesters. Outside of her academics, she has been active on campus. She is a student-athlete as a member and captain of the Hunt Seat riding team.

Cameron Kincer (Neon, Ky.), The Midway Woman Award – The Midway Woman Award is given to a graduating female undergraduate who demonstrates a profound sense of service to others and is a role model who exemplifies the core values of the University. Additionally, the recipient of the Midway Woman Award must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Cameron Kincer received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. She was an on-campus leader serving as the President of Gamma Beta Phi National Honor Society and a Ruth Slack Roach Scholar for the past two years as well as being a student-athlete and member of the Women’s Soccer Team.
