The Leadership of Excellence Awards at Bluefield College are honors given to students who have exhibited exceptional leadership skills inside and outside of the classroom. Candidates must exemplify the traits that make up the characteristics of a Ram, like sacrifice, protection, authority, determination, action, initiative, and leadership. Students who receive a Leadership of Excellence Award are those who have demonstrated leadership, excellence, dedication and commitment above and beyond the requirements of a paid or appointed role.
Awards will be presented in three areas:
Recipients must be full-time undergraduate students who, through their leadership, have made outstanding contributions to the Bluefield College community. Students are not recognized solely on the basis of their employment records or office or position held, but for the breadth and depth of their leadership. Eligibility for nomination is based on scholarship, leadership and service. Award recipients must be in good academic and disciplinary standing and demonstrate a balance of academic and co-curricular excellence. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 is expected for award recipients. All full-time undergraduate students regardless of class standing are eligible for awards (except where noted).
Any faculty, staff or student at Bluefield College may nominate any eligible student who meets the award criteria. All nominations must be submitted in writing via a letter of recommendation explaining how the student meets the criteria established for each award or by completing and submitting the online nomination form. Nominations will be accepted through April 16 of each year for the current academic year.
