URI announces president's awards
Each year, the University of Rhode Island honors graduating seniors with superior academic achievement in a particular field with a President's Award for Student Excellence. Selection is based on grade-point average, as well as other criteria determined by the individual department.
Two Jamestown residents have received the awards and will be presented with them at a May 20 ceremony.
Alexis Coppola, a women's studies major and Sara Lincoln, a geo sciences major, each received the honors.
