Herbert among IUPUI top 100

Greensburg — Congratulations go to Herron School of Art and Design junior Sarah Herbert, a visual communication design major, who is among Indiana University Purdue University-Indianapolis’s 2013 Top 100 Students.

These 100 students embody what IUPUI, a top urban research university, stands for: scholastic achievement, collegiate and co-curricular involvement and civic and community service.

The Top 100 students were selected out of more than 1,078 nominees from fellow IUPUI students, faculty and staff. Nominees must be degree-seeking juniors or seniors on the Indianapolis campus, who have completed a minimum of 56 credit hours — 25 of which must have been earned at IUPUI — and hold a minimum 3.0 grade point average.

A committee of faculty, staff and alumni review the nominations and rank the candidates.

Herbert is an Honors College Scholar and holds the coveted Adam W. Herbert Presidential Scholars Program scholarship. Herbert (no relation) has a 4.0 grade point average.

The IUPUI Alumni Council and the Student Organization for Alumni Relations are co-sponsoring the 14th Annual IUPUI Top 100 Outstanding Students Recognition Dinner, a semi-formal event that will take place on Friday, April 12 at the Indianapolis Marriott.

Herbert had this to say about her accomplishment: “I am very excited to be a part of IUPUI’s Top 100. It is a great honor to be recognized with 99 other students who are highly engaged in the classroom, on campus and in the community.”

Professor Eva Roberts, who chairs Visual Communication and Design at Herron, said, “I met Sarah in my sophomore class where she quickly distinguished herself as a talented and committed student. Now a junior, she continues to excel as a young designer who brings her quiet grace and concern for others to her work. Sarah is a pleasure to have in the program, and we are so proud that her achievements have been honored with this award.”
