On Monday April 25, University of the Cumberlands held its annual Honors Day Convocation. The program honors students, faculty, and staff for their achievements during the academic school year. One of the honored students was Clint Adam Creekmore (Williamsburg) who was recognized with the P.R. Jones Chemistry Outstanding Senior Award.
Creekmore, the son of Russell and Mary Creekmore, was also named a student of High Honor while managing to maintain a 4.0 GPA while double majoring in Chemistry and Biology with a minor in Math.
Creekmore is the president of the Gamma Sigma Epsilon National Chemistry Honor Society, a member of the National Freshman Honor Society, a member of Kappa Mu Epsilon, and was inducted into the J.T. Vallandingham Scholastic Honor Society. This is the highest honor a student can achieve. To be eligible, a student must have completed 96 semester hours as a full-time student and have a 3.5 standing or better each semester. The student must also have a cumulative standing of 3.7 or better. Transfer students have a different set of rules depending on GPA and number of hours taken at the university.
In addition, Creekmore was also awarded the National Science Foundation-STEM Scholarship and the Ledford Research Award. He presented his research work at the American Chemical Society meeting in Puerto Rico.
Upon graduation, Clint will pursue his Doctor of Pharmacy degree at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala.
