UI recognizes top two liberal arts students
(ATTN: DES MOINES AND CEDAR FALLS EDITORS: A student from your readership
area has received a prestigious University of Iowa scholarship. The information
below includes the student's name and major, and the parents' names.)
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A psychology major from Cedar Falls and a biochemistry
major from West Des Moines have received awards for being the top two students
in the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts.
Judith P. Aikin, dean of the college, has announced that Kara J. Deaver,
daughter of Gerald Deaver of Cedar Falls, and Tiffany Rae Tedore, daughter
of John and Phyllis Tedore of West Des Moines, are the winners of the Ernest
R. Johnson Memorial Prizes. Both students will graduate this May.
Deaver and Tedore were chosen from a pool of UI students who graduated
in August or December 1996, or will graduate this May, and who have 4.0
grade point averages. In order to be considered, students must have earned
the right to graduate with "highest distinction," an honor bestowed
to the top two percent of graduating seniors in the college.
