Awards Day - April 14, 2015

Awards Day 2015

Louisburg College was proud to host the 2015 Awards Day this morning at the Jones Performing Art Center, where for the first time in College history the Bessie Arrington Gupton Distinguished Service Award was given to a student, Kai Willis, for her contributions to the College. Kai shares the award with Physical Plant Director Nathan Biegenzahn, who is to be commended for his leadership on campus through multiple renovation projects. Nathan's kind, can-do attitude and positive spirit sets a great example for his staff and for the students that surround him daily.

We are proud of the contributions and achievements made by all of our students, staff and faculty. Go Canes!
