CHSP honors scholarship winners

Nearly 100 of the top students in the College of Health Sciences and Professions were recognized for their achievements during the 39th Annual Scholarship Awards Reception held inside Ohio University’s Grover Center on Friday, Sept. 7.

“We have over 9,000 students enrolled in more than 30 academic majors across five schools and departments. Of those 9,000 — one of the largest health colleges in America — you’re the top 1 percent in this college,” said CHSP Dean Randy Leite to a crowd of students, family and friends. “That’s a real achievement and I think you should all be congratulated for your hard work.

Those in attendance sat in the Grover Center Atrium under banners that “describe who we are as a college,” said Leite.

“Our college is a place where everything connects; Where high-tech meets healing touch; Where personal passion meets public good,” he said. “We’re a place where our students have the chance to learn, develop and grow into the best professionals they can be.”

Leite acknowledged the faculty and staff of CHSP that help make the college known for the quality of its academic programs and the success of its graduates, adding that CHSP has multiple programs that are rated in the top 10 percent of similar programs in the nation.
