Joshua Witt of Franklin, an environmental microbiology major, was one of 52 West Virginia University students distinguished as a WVU Foundation Outstanding Senior.
Witt was recognized May 12 in the Betty Boyd Lounge in Elizabeth Moore Hall on the college campus.
“The WVU Outstanding Senior award recipients represent the best and brightest of graduating seniors at the University,” Maryanne Reed, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said. “Each of these students is exemplary and has made a positive impact through academic excellence, leadership and service. They will undoubtedly be forces to be reckoned with, as they lead change in their local communities and the world.”
