West Virginia’s top high school seniors have the opportunity to compete for Fairmont State University’s premier academic scholarship, the Dr. Charles J. McClain Presidential Scholarship.
A total of 1,128 students were named to the Dean’s List at Fairmont State University after completing the fall 2010 semester. These students are being recognized for academic distinction by earning a 3.4 or better grade point average. Students achieving a perfect 4.0 grade point average also have been named to the President’s List.
On Feb. 18 and 19, Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College will host a Student Leadership Conference with the theme “Succeeding Against All Odds.”
