Cove student awarded honor of Academic Excellence

OGDEN, Utah — Weber State University awarded Sophia Pettit of Cove with the honor of Academic Excellence for the fall 2020 semester. Pettit earned the distinction by maintaining a GPA of at least 3.5.

The achievement of earning Academic Excellence is difficult under normal circumstances, but was made especially challenging with the added pressure of handling the mental and emotional impact of a global pandemic, political unrest and an unusual learning environment.

WSU Provost Ravi Krovi in a press release stated, "Maintaining a high and consistent level of academic excellence is a process, which involves developing traits of discipline, persistence and personal leadership. To be able to sustain that effort during these difficult times also demonstrates grit and tenacity. We are proud of these students, their efforts and their overall academic accomplishments."
