The program’s primary goals include stewardship, citizenship and leadership.

Five graduating Alma College students — Grace Erickson, Parker Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Flatoff, Pedro Granja Berrios and Julie Neuvirth — were named as having completed the requirements to be named as Presidential Honors Scholars.

  • Parker Fitzgerald of Grand Ledge, a biochemistry major.
  • Elizabeth Flatoff of Highland, a political science and Spanish major.
