Rachel Nachum 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 Rachel Nachum 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. Nachum 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.

Nachum, a Kansas City, Mo., native, is a graduate of Lincoln College Preparatory Academy. When she graduates from UMKC this May, she will earn a Bachelor of Arts in History from the College of Arts and Sciences. Her involvements have included serving as a corps member and team leader of Jumpstart in addition to her active membership in the Jewish campus organization Hillel. In addition, she has received countless academic honors and scholarships, including membership in Omicron Delta Kappa, Phi Beta Delta and Mortar Board. She will graduate suma cum laude.

Nachum 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.
