On April 20th, MABE held its first-ever virtual awards celebration for the top juniors, seniors, and graduate students in the department.
Although, there was some disappointment that the students couldn’t be recognized in person at the department’s annual awards banquet, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the virtual celebration still allowed everyone to come together to celebrate.
Parents, grandparents, and spouses were also invited to attend the virtual celebration.
“I want to congratulate these students who have worked tirelessly and excelled in their studies this past year,” said Interim Department Head Kivanc Ekici. “I have no doubt these students will continue to do great things and have a bright future ahead of them. We are fortunate to have such wonderful students in MABE.”
