CCM Recognizes Scholarship and Award Winners at Honors Night

 IMG_4298The Division of Communication and Creative Media celebrated the success of its stellar students by awarding nine $1,000 CCM Dean’s Scholarships for eligible returning undergraduate students and 10 CCM Excel Awards for graduating students in the BS and MFA programs.

Also recognized were winners of the annual Vermont Association of Broadcasters Scholarship, and recipients of the newly established Stowe Story Lab Fellowships and of the CCM Dean’s Choice Award for the college’s first 2016 Juried Student Exhibition.

The celestial­ themed event also included a stargazing reception where the “star” honorees and their guests had the opportunity to view various constellations with high­ performance telescopes provided by the Vermont Astronomical Society.

“We are tremendously proud of our CCM students’ accomplishments. Honors Night is an opportunity to publicly recognize and celebrate their talent and hard work, and their dedication to serving Champlain’s mission of being ‘the finest small, globally and professional focused college in the United States.’ We introduced several new awards this year, including academic scholarships, to further support the success of our students,” says CCM Dean Paula Willoquet Maricondi.
