At the Spring 2014 Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 17th, Architecture and Environmental Design (BSAED) graduate, Ralph Harper, was named the 2014 recipient of the President’s Award for Exceptional Creative Achievement.
The award, established in 1953 by Dr. Martin D. Jenkins, President of what was then Morgan State College, has been a tradition to encourage and give recognition to the expression of worthwhile original ideas among the students of the university. It is intended that this award will go to that member of the graduating class who has made an exceptional contribution of a creative nature.
The Award for Exceptional Creative Achievement goes to a student who makes a creative contribution in any field or area. The winner of the President’s Award for Exceptional Creative Achievement is selected by a faculty committee. Departments and individual faculty members are invited to submit nominations for the award through the appropriate department chairperson. Nominations are supported by adequate description of the nominee’s achievement.
This Fall, Ralph Harper will be enrolling in the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
