AUK holds 6th Annual Awards Night

The American University of Kuwait held its 6th Annual Awards Night on Wednesday, May 19th, 2010 at 7 pm in the AUK Auditorium. The Ceremony commenced with a welcome note from AUK Interim President Dr. Tim Sullivan followed by a night of awards for AUK staff, faculty and students. Each division/department awarded their most worthy student employee in an effort to recognize their hard work and the Student Government Association in return awarded faculty and staff for their support.

The Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Carol Ross-Scott said of the ceremony, "AUK Student Awards night celebrates the engagement of students in activities outside the classroom. Activities such as student media, athletics, curriculum related organizations, service clubs and leadership bring the university experience to life. Involvement compels our students to push the boundaries of excellence, academically and in extra-curricular activities. We want our students to be better prepared to serve the competitive, global society and awards night is where we highlight their achievements of the academic year."

The highlights of the evening were the Dean of Student Affair's Award, the Founders' Award and the President's Award. The recipients of these awards are students who have shown exceptional academic achievement and involvement in activities outside of the classroom among other criteria.
