Many recipients recognized during the Honor's Program are accepted in some of the nation's finest graduate schools and award winning research laboratories. The keynote speaker is Dr. Steven Gilchrist, a practicing physician and a 1999 alumnus, from the Honors Program. He is also the son of Chancellor and Mrs. Gilchrist.
