The University of South Carolina recognized nine students from the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management during the university’s annual Awards Day ceremony on April 19 on the Horseshoe.
President Harris Pastides was on hand to present the President’s Awards, recognizing exceptional graduating seniors for major achievements in service, leadership, academics and research. Sport and entertainment management major Anthony Carson and retailing major Charlee Wilkerson were both honored with the prestigious award this year.
The 2018 recipient for the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Leadership went to hospitality management senior Catherine Snyder. The award is given each year to a graduating senior who has positively impacted the college through service as an ambassador and as a student organization leader.
Two HRSM students received recognition specifically for their work outside the classroom. Joshua Behringer and Matthew Pace received the Paul P. Fidler Volunteer Service Award for outstanding service to those in need in the community.
