By Laura Nelson, Director of Enrollment Marketing

One of the highlights of the academic year for students who attend Sul Ross State Univ. at the Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde campuses is the spring banquet. Faculty, staff, and students gather to celebrate honors students, scholarship recipients, and campus favorites. Since we could not hold a banquet in 2020, we have created a festive video to celebrate those students.

We recognize the challenges these students have overcome this academic year and we applaud them.

See the video on YouTube MRGC Spring 2020 Awards.

Below is a list of students and organizations that were recognized.

Alpha Chi National Honor Scholarship Society

Alpha Chi is a national collegiate honor society open to students studying any academic discipline. Those inducted take part in a ceremony and they receive an Alpha Chi medallion to wear at commencement as well as a lapel pin.
