University of Mississippi students have been honored as part of their affiliation with the Columns Society to recognize their commitment to serving the institution.
Members of the Columns Society serve as the official hosts and hostesses for the university, and each year, awards are presented to those members who show exceptional faithfulness and service.
“These students have gone above and beyond their roles in serving the University of Mississippi, and I’m delighted to be able to honor them with these awards,” said Natasha Jeter, assistant vice chancellor for wellness and student success.
This year’s recipient of the Christine Wallace Award is senior biochemistry major Jay Fritts. This award is named in honor of Christine Wallace, former director of university and public events, in acknowledgement of her tireless service to Ole Miss. The award is given to the member who served the most hours during the year.
