Three students, who graduated on May 22, were recognized for earning a perfect 4.0 GPA for their entire course of study. Each year, faculty and staff on campus take up a collection to honor the second president of the College, E. Carleton Nickerson, while also honoring those students who have earned straight A’s.  The awards were presented by 2013 Excellence in Teaching award recipient, Professor Nancy Dempsey.  The three Nickerson 4.0 scholars, who each received a $500 award, are listed below:

Brittany Bunnell AA, Liberal Arts, Psychology    Edgartown

Since the creation of the College’s Educational Foundation (in 1983) as an independent, non-profit organization, more than $5.9 million in scholarships has been distributed to students.  The scholarship program is a cornerstone of the Foundation’s mission.  The Foundation raises more than $1 million annually to fund scholarships, improve College facilities, support innovative programs for students and faculty, and to promote the essential role the College provides to the Cape Cod and Islands community.
