Chemical Engineering senior, Ishika Khondaker has been named as a UF Outstanding Four-Year Scholar for the 2018 spring commencement and graduation ceremonies.
According to her academic advisor Cynthia Sain, Khondaker has defined professional excellence through her service and academics. She exhibited excellence in management and planning while maintaining an almost perfect GPA, serving her peers and future Gators, and furthering cultural understanding. Her pending patent is evidence of her technical competence and scientific insight. She is a defining example of professional excellence in a Gator Engineer.
Khondaker will be featured in the commencement program and graduation ceremony processional on Sunday, May 6. During the program, she will also be introduced and recognized by the University of Florida Alumni Association president. During the ceremony, she will be a part of the platform party as a distinguished guest and representative of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering.
At each commencement the University of Florida, in cooperation with the Alumni Association, honors one or more students as Two-Year or Four-Year Scholars. A faculty committee for these awards makes selections based on a broad definition of scholastic achievement. Overall grade point average is important but the committee also considers academic awards, research projects, published papers, convention presentations and honors theses.
Join us in congratulating Ishika on her achievement.
