Whitener Medal RecipientsThe recipients of the Whitener Medals were announced at the awards convocation but will actually receive their awards during Catawba's May 9th graduation exercise. They are Jill Archambault of Glens Falls, N.Y., and Jared Kenish of Glassboro, N.J.  Named in honor of the late Dr. Edgar Whitener of High Point who served as president of the Catawba Board of Trustees from 1925-44, these awards are presented annually to the man and woman in the graduating class who combine in themselves, in the highest degree, the qualities of character, leadership and scholarship. Selection is made by the faculty from the three men and three women who have received the highest number of votes in an election in which only members of the junior and senior class may vote.
