The Wright State Parents Association and Friends of the Libraries honored graduating seniors as the Top Scholars of their colleges, including Lorrilyn Louise Yelton, pictured with Biological Sciences chair David Goldstein and interim University Librarian Sheila Shellabarger.

The Wright State University Parents Association and the Wright State University Friends of the Libraries honored six graduating seniors as the Top Scholars for their colleges at a reception April 11 in the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library.

Each student was selected by the dean’s office of his or her college from a list of seniors with GPAs of 3.6 or higher.

Every year since 1995, the Parents Association purchases a book in each scholar’s name in his or her subject area for the University Libraries’ collections. The scholar is named on a bookplate and in the online catalog record for their book.
