The Clifford Hicks Honor Keys are named for professor Clifford M. Hicks, who served on the CBA faculty for 43 years and was chairman of the Department of Business Organization and Management from 1950 until his retirement in 1968. This year, 20 students received this honor, which has been awarded since 1971 to students with the highest academic standing throughout their sophomore year.
 
Thirty-eight students received the LeRossignol Scholar Award, named for James E. LeRossignol, the first dean of the College of Business Administration, who served from 1913 to 1941. This award has been presented since 1988 to students having the highest academic standing throughout their junior year.
 
Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities and encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice. The Alpha Delta Chapter at UNL was formed in May 1924 and has had more than 2,000 members since its inception. The Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key is granted to students graduating in May with the highest grade point average in the college. Four seniors were honored with this recognition.
 
Following the Honors Ceremony at CBA, more than 300 business students were recognized for their cumulative academic achievement at the UNL All-University Honors Convocation, including four CBA seniors who were named Chancellor’s Scholars, the university’s highest undergraduate academic honor. Chancellor’s Scholars included: David Engel, actuarial science major from Cary, Illinois; Scott Johnson, actuarial science major from Kansas City, Missouri; Alex Kindopp, actuarial science major from Watertown, South Dakota; and Taylor Kupfer, accounting major from La Vista, Nebraska.
