Sarah Peters named a 2007 UMKC Honor Award recipient

The University of Missouri-Kansas City Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management has named Sarah Peters a 2007 Honor Award recipient, one of only 10 such graduating seniors to be commended for both her academic achievements and participation in programs outside the classroom. Peters will be congratulated for her accomplishments at a reception May 4.

UMKC established the honor award program in 1975 to recognize graduating seniors who excelled in academic achievement, involvement in university program and service to the campus and surrounding community. Involvements include student government, clubs and organizations, debate, athletics, visual and performing arts and community service.

Peters, a Casper, Wyoming, native, is a graduate of Natrona County High School. When she graduates from UMKC this May, she will earn a Bachelor of Arts in History as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in arts administration. Her involvements have included serving as president of the College of Arts and Sciences Student Council, president of the Conservatory’s Student Association and senator and president pro tempore for the Student Government Association. In addition, she served on countless committees responsible for such things as the development of the Conservatory’s curriculum, celebration of the Conservatory’s 100th anniversary and the hiring of the university chancellor, the vice chancellor of university advancement and the dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.

Peters and her follow recipients will be honored at a reception and breakfast from 8 to 9:30 a.m. May in room 106 of the University Center, 5000 Holmes St., Kansas City, Mo.

UMKC is one of four University of Missouri campuses. It is a public university serving more than 14,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students.
