2021-2022 Academic Excellence Award recipients announced

Academic Excellence 2021-2022

Panola College is proud to announce the Academic Excellence Award recipients for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The Academic Excellence Awards were created by Charles Moore, a math professor at Panola College for many years. Moore’s goal was to acknowledge students who excelled academically and recognize them with an award for their accomplishments.

Each department or field of study nominates two students who meet select criteria. The student must have, or be completing, 30 hours of coursework and be enrolled in two courses relating to the field in which they are nominated.

The recipients of the 2021-2022 Academic Excellence Awards are listed below, followed by the town they are from, the field of study in which they are nominated, and their professor.
