Fourteen graduating seniors have earned awards from the University Honors Program at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Computer science major Antonio Linhart was recognized as an Outstanding Honors Ambassador.

The Outstanding Honors Leadership Award recognizes an honors graduate who has made the most significant and lasting impact to the Honors Program through their leadership. This year, the award was given to two students: Troy Scheer of Gretna and Lizbeth Daniela Chavez of Grand Island.

The Honors Program collaborated with Nebraska’s undergraduate colleges to recognize an Outstanding Honors Graduate from each college. These seven students were selected based on their contributions to, and involvement with, both the Honors Program and their respective colleges.

Four students were also recognized for outstanding leadership within one of the Honors Program’s registered student organizations: Honors Ambassadors, Honors Program Student Advisory Board, Honors Peer Mentor Leaders and the Dr. Michael W. Combs Honors Scholars.

Finally, two students were recognized with the Honors Resilience Award, which acknowledges Honors Program graduates who have persisted and grown through adversity during their time at Nebraska to achieve at a high level both personally and academically.

Congratulations to Antonio on this outstanding achievement!
