Three individuals from the college were recently recognized for their commitment to promoting diversity within the college and Virginia Tech.

The College Diversity Council honored,  Stephanie “Nikki” Lewis of Newport News. Va., staff member Susan Rosebrough, and Emeritus Professor Randolph Grayson in an award ceremony on May 29.

The Diversity Council presents the annual awards to students, faculty, and staff who have been selfless ambassadors of diversity initiatives within the college and the university. This year, the student award was renamed the Dr. Randolph Grayson Student Diversity Enhancement Award after students continually cited the encouragement and support Grayson has given them over the years.
