Myers, marketing (Yazoo City, MS); Cecilia Bercerril Nieves. foreign language and international business (Cleveland, MS); and Meghan Rosemary Vogelsang, aviation management (Hernando, MS).
“The Student Hall of Fame is a wonderful way to recognize students who have been scholars and have exhibited a civic and social conscience throughout their matriculation at DSU,” said Dr. Vernell Bennett, vice president for Student Affairs. “This honor affords students an opportunity to leave a legacy at DSU that will be recognized forevermore. This year’s inductees have distinguished themselves in the classroom, in student organizations, in athletics, and in the local community. We’re proud of, and grateful for their many contributions to DSU and its community.”
