(4-26-23) The University Libraries are pleased to announce the Wright State University 2023 Top Scholars. Top Scholars is an annual award given to a graduating senior from each college and Lake Campus. Top Scholars are selected by the dean and must have at least a 3.6 GPA, be on track to graduate in spring, and represent the mission, vision and values of our inclusive University.
Each recipient receives a certificate, and a book is purchased and added to the University Libraries’ permanent collections in honor of each Top Scholar. Bookplates with the student’s name, college, and award year are affixed to the book and are also added to the libraries catalog record. The subjects of the books are chosen from within the student’s majors and the books are selected by the libraries’ collection management team. The Wright State University and the Friends of the Libraries fund the award, now in its 29th year.
Book: Nursing Health Assessment: A Clinical Judgment Approach, by Sharon Jensen
After Graduation Plans and Favorite Memory:
“After graduation, I have a job lined up at Upper Valley Medical Center Emergency Department as a Registered Nurse. I plan to work at UVMC to gain experience before moving on to grad school.
As a nursing student, I’ve spent hundreds of hours in the clinical setting learning from mentors and caring for patients. Everyday had its own skill, lesson or pathology to expand upon. One that I vividly remember was caring for a patient that was critical in Dayton Children’s Emergency Department. Caring for the child, communicating with the family and learning along the way was truly a fulfilling experience.”
