Twanna Green 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 Twanna Green 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. Green 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.

Green, a Kansas City, Kan., native, is a graduate of Sumner Academy High School. At UMKC, she has pursued a degree in psychology with a minor in chemistry from the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition to her rigorous academic schedule, Green has served as a residence hall community assistant, a campus ambassador and as the treasurer and community service chair for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

Green’s other memberships have included Mortar Board Honor Society, Psi Chi Honor Society, National Panhellenic Council, African American Student Union, UMKC Residence Hall Council and Psychology Club. In addition, she was a 2007 Court Warming Queen candidate.

Green and her fellow recipients will be honored at a reception and breakfast from 8 to 9:30 a.m. May 4 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. UMKC engages with the community and economy based on a three-part mission: visual and performing arts, health and life sciences, and urban affairs.
