BATON ROUGE – LSU University College presented its annual “Celebration of Excellence” Spring Awards Reception on Wednesday, March 20, at the LSU Faculty Club. University College awarded $49,250 through 54 scholarships, and $9,500 through nine LSU faculty teaching awards and one LSU Advisor of the Year Award.

Macy Esneault was awarded LSU University College’s Tiger Athletic Foundation Sophomore Award. Esneault, a freshman majoring in political science with a 4.0 GPA, joins an elite group of scholarship recipients. She is a graduate of Ascension Catholic High School in Donaldsonville.

The Tiger Athletic Foundation Sophomore Award is generously provided through the support of TAF. It is awarded to a full-time LSU freshman student enrolled in University College with a minimum of 15 credit hours and at least a 3.5 GPA.

“One of the highlights of each academic year is for University College to reward outstanding academic achievement with the various scholarships and awards we have available through gifts from our benefactors,” said Paul Ivey, executive director of LSU University College. “Our Spring ‘Celebration of Excellence’ ceremony provided us the opportunity to publicly recognize these high academic achievers within our college.”

University College salutes these deserving LSU students in succeeding in their academic achievements, and expresses our gratitude to parents and friends for their continued support.
