Students Earn Recognition for Highest GPA

The President’s Cup is awarded to those students with the highest grade point average in their respective class.

Thirty-four Alma College students — 29 first-year students, four sophomores and one junior — were recently awarded the President’s Cup. The students earned the honor by achieving the highest academic standing in their respective classes at Alma.

The tradition of the President’s Cup was started nearly 50 years ago in 1968 by Alma’s ninth President, Robert D. Swanson. Students earning the honor receive a certificate acknowledging their achievement.
