Students and Teachers Receive Rose Kelly Awards

Students at The University of Scranton and their high school teachers who they credit for contributing to their success were recognized at the Rose Kelly Awards ceremony held recently on campus.

The Rose Kelly Award was established by a University of Scranton alumnus, Joseph Wineburgh, Ph.D., to link the efforts of educators to the achievements of college students. The award is presented jointly to a student in each of The University of Scranton’s colleges who has completed two years at Scranton and to the teacher whom he or she recognizes as having a great impact on his or her life. Students are selected based on exemplary achievement in both academics and general campus involvement.

He is involved in the  Business Club, the Society of Accounting Students, and was a recipient of the University’s O’Hara Award in 2010, which recognizes outstanding academic achievement of students.
