Earlier this year, the EXCEL Scholars Program celebrated another tremendously successful year with a banquet at WPAOG's Herbert Hall. 2LT Simone Askew ’18, a Rhodes Scholar, introduced Dr. Leslie Fenwick, former Dean Emerita of the Howard University School of Education, who gave an inspiring speech to cadets, faculty, and guests in attendance at the event.
The EXCEL Scholars Program is a Dean’s initiative to promote the personal and professional excellence of high performing cadets from underrepresented groups. This year, the EXCEL Scholars Program graduated five scholarship winners (Marshall, Fulbright, Knight-Hennessy, GEM x 2), and one medical school candidate.
Thanks to donor support of the Margin of Excellence and the Diversity & Inclusion Endowment, the EXCEL Scholars Program is possible!
