2015-2016 Trustee Scholar Recipients and Nominees Announced

Each year, the Ringling College of Art and Design Board of Trustees is proud to award its highest honor - the Trustee Scholarship - to an exclusive group of extraordinary rising seniors.  The hard work, talent, spirit, and dedication of these award recipients exemplify excellence.  Each Trustee Scholar receives a scholarship.  The scholarship recipients and the nominees will be honored at an official recognition ceremony in the fall.

Two Trustee Scholar nominees are selected each spring from the junior class by the faculty of each major and the Office of Student Life.  The Board of Trustees' Trustee Scholar Selection Committee, led this year by Trustee Larry Garberding, reviews each student's submission materials and portfolio, makes their selection, and recommends the appointment of scholars to the entire Board of Trustees based on the following criteria:

1. Exceptional talent and distinction of mind 

2. Contribution to the department, College, and/or community 

3. Leadership, citizenship, mentorship 

Each nominee this year was a fantastic representative of Ringling College and the Trustees had a very difficult time selecting the winners.  On behalf of the entire Ringling College Board of Trustees, I am privileged to officially announce the Trustee Scholars for 2015-2016 and to also congratulate all of the nominees.
