Class of 2024 Razorback Classics with Chancellor Charles Robinson.

The Arkansas Alumni Association recognized Anna Mathis of Valley Springs and Benjamin Walworth B.S.B.A.'24 of Branson, Missouri, with the 2024 Senior Honor Citation. Chancellor Charles Robinson announced the awards during the Cardinal & White Celebration on May 9.

The citation recognizes outstanding academic achievement, leadership skills and cocurricular engagement at the U of A. The Arkansas Alumni Association has conferred the citation on two seniors from each graduating class since the award's establishment in 1965.

During the Cardinal & White Celebration, the Arkansas Alumni Association recognized 20 Razorback Classics from the Class of 2024. To support an inclusive and equitable selection process, the Arkansas Alumni Association carefully evaluates this program each year and endeavors to diversify the pools of both applicants and reviewers.

This year, nominations were solicited from faculty and staff in academic departments as well as the divisions of Athletics and Student Affairs. These 143 nominated students were named Seniors of Significance and invited to apply for Razorback Classics and Senior Honor Citations. Alumni and staff reviewed 81 applications to identify the slate of honorees. The outstanding students chosen this year reflect these efforts, and we are proud to honor them.
