Noel Moore Achievement Award Recipients

Noel E. Moore Achievement Award is given to sophomore, junior and senior student(s) at the beginning of each quarter based on the approved criteria considering the activities of the students in the previous quarter.


The Student Achievement Award recognizes students who take initiative in their coursework and demonstrate a strong desire to learn.  The criteria are based on class work, leadership and performance.

Examples include: improvement in class work; reviewing and learning from previous exams; thoughtful consideration of the homework assignments; participation in class discussions; enthusiastic attention in class;  questioning and showing spirit that lends a more open atmosphere in the classroom; and inquisitiveness and eagerness to make the connection between the class and the world.  Special service to the school and to the Rose community through articles and editorials to the Thorn, leadership in SGA, the AIChE student chapter and other organizations also demonstrate initiative in making a difference.
