STAFF REPORTS


BEREA, Ohio -- Local students stand among a distinguished group of students at Baldwin Wallace University that has reached BW's pinnacle of academic honor society achievement with fall 2017 induction into the Dayton C. Miller Honor Society. The following students were honored with membership that is achieved by less than four percent of the undergraduate student body:

  • Paige Lindauer of Buffalo, a graduate of Williamsville High School South majoring in communication sciences and disorders.
  • Thomas Rector of Webster, a graduate of Webster Schroeder High School majoring in mathematics.
  • Jacob Slater of Rochester, a graduate of Greece Arcadia High School majoring in music theatre.
  • Alyssa Smith of Hilton, a graduate of Hilton Central High School majoring in French and history.
  • Brianna Volkmann of Fairport, a graduate of Fairport High School majoring in instrumental performance.

In order to be considered for induction, students must have earned a minimum of 70 semester hours, with at least 32 semester hours earned at BW. From those meeting the semester hour requirement, the top 100 current student GPAs are eligible for membership.

The society, which was founded at BW in 1948, honors the memory of BW alumnus Dayton C. Miller (1886), who served as a professor of Physics at the Case Institute for many years, conducting notable research into the science of acoustics and assembling a unique collection of flutes, currently held by the Smithsonian. Miller served as secretary and later president of the BW Board of Trustees, and he was active in the University community until his death in 1941.

Baldwin Wallace University, founded in 1845, was one of the first colleges to admit students without regard to race or gender. An independent, coeducational university of 4,000 students, BW offers coursework in the liberal arts tradition in more than 80 academic areas. Located in Berea, 12 miles from downtown Cleveland, BW offers students the cultural, educational and business advantages of a major metropolitan area.
