Undergraduates with Highest GPA Earn Recognition

President’s Cup awarded to students with best grade point averages.

Twenty-seven Alma College students — 23 freshmen, three 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 and have their name inscribed on the appropriate class (freshman, sophomore or junior) President’s Cup trophy. The trophies are kept on permanent display in the Reid-Knox Administration Building on campus.
