Nominations are being sought for the George Wharton Pepper Prize, awarded annually to the senior “who most nearly represents the Lafayette ideal.”

The prize was established in 1923 by George Wharton Pepper, a United States senator from Pennsylvania, an attorney, and a founding member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association. In his gift, Pepper noted that the “ideal” Lafayette student combines a “sound academic record” with “noteworthy participation in College activities and student life.”

Any member of the Lafayette community may nominate a senior for this award. Nominations should be forwarded to the Office of the Dean of Students, 107 Markle Hall, via campus mail, emailing yusellaj, or calling x5082.

Nominees will be evaluated by the Faculty Committee on Student Life and members of the Faculty Committee on Academic Progress.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, April 4.

Questions about the process may be directed to James Krivoski, Dean of Students, at x5082.
