Laura R. Duke, social studies education and with a concentration in economics/government, was one of six selected for the Charles O. McGaughey Leadership Award. McGaughey, a 1939 Purdue graduate, established the awards to honor students for leadership potential. To be eligible for these awards, students must have completed a minimum of two years of full-time study at Purdue and achieved at least a 3.0 graduation index. Recipients are selected on the basis of their contributions to Purdue and the community. Each honoree receives $3,345 as an acknowledgement of their superior leadership abilities, scholarship and appreciation of basic American values.

We are thrilled and very proud of the accomplishments of these highly-accomplished, driven students. These honors are acknowledgement of all they have poured into their Purdue experience.

We look forward to seeing #TheNextGiantLeap they each take.
