The Student Recognition Program was initiated in 1989 for the purpose of recognizing and encouraging scholarship, leadership and service among ATI students. Students are nominated for these awards by faculty members, and the nomination forms are reviewed for final approval by a faculty evaluation committee. Selection is made on the basis of academic history, participation in ATI organizations and activities, on-campus leadership and awards, community leadership and awards, and work experience.
