Wooster Geologists graduate!

May 18th, 2017

WOOSTER, OHIO — We had the pleasure on Monday of watching our geology seniors cross the stage and receive their diplomas. It happens every year, of course, and every year is special. Above is an image of most of the class taken in September as they started their last year at Wooster.

We were delighted that Wooster Geologist Helen Siegel (’17) earned the opportunity to speak at the commencement ceremony. (Image by ace College photographer Matt Dilyard.) She was a spectacular representation of her graduating class. She earned summa cum laude, Honors in Independent Study, the Jonas O. Notestein Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa Prize, and just about every award offered by the Geology Department itself. She is off to Yale on a full ride. Well done, Helen.

Sarah McGrath (’17) was another summa cum laude geology graduate; Clara Deck (’17), Annette HiltonĀ (’17) and Chloe Wallace (’17) earned magna cum laude. It was a remarkably talented class — we’re proud of every student.
