Westfield’s Joseph Spaulding, a school of engineering and technology senior, was named the most outstanding male student at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis for 2015.
More than 2,100 students were nominated as IUPUI outstanding students. From the top 100 students, the top 10 female and male students were chosen by a panel of alumni, faculty, and staff. Spaulding and Corinne Blackburn of Hobart were then selected from this select group as the most outstanding female and male students.
Students are selected in recognition of their scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities on campus, and civic and community service. To be named a top student, students had to meet several criteria, including being a degree-seeking junior or senior at IUPUI; completing a minimum of 56 credit hours applicable to her/his degree program; and achieving a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
The top 20 students included three other seniors from Hamilton County: Sarah Fortney, school of science, Noblesville; Stephen Stashevsky, school of physical education and tourism management, Fishers; and Anthony Taylor, school of science, Carmel.
