It is a virtual and literal list full of who’s who. Each year, Who’s Who among Students in American Colleges and Universities recognizes individual academic excellence on a national level. And this year, twelve Converse College seniors have made the list:
Kimberly Bates of Tuscumbia, Ala.
Marlee Beckham of Camden, S.C.
Kelly Fulmer of Columbia, S.C.
Garrison Howard of Clinton, S.C.
Katherine Landon of Knoxville, Tenn.
Christa Laughter of Hendersonville, N.C.
Marci Marinelli of Hendersonville, Tenn.
Anna Millikan of Asheboro, N.C.
LaShauna Mills of Inman, S.C.
Stephanie Roach of Aragon, Ga.
Amy Schmidt of Norfolk, Va.
Leslie Wiggins of Norcross, Ga.
To be selected, a student is recommended by a committee of Converse faculty, staff, and administration members on the basis of academic performance (a minimum grade point average of 3.0), accomplishments, and leadership in the community as well as the classroom.
