UT Tyler Students Selected as Rotary Young Citizens
Two students at The University of Texas at Tyler were among area students who were selected to join Tyler’s Rotary Young Citizens Club, Dr. Howard Patterson, vice president for student affairs, announced.
Graduate student Marc Randle of Edgewood and junior Ciera Ward of Tyler were chosen to represent the university in the club, which is a local part of Rotary International. To be named an outstanding young citizen, students should be exceptional in the practices of citizenship, cleanliness, thriftiness, loyalty, courtesy, honesty, service, dependability, sportsmanship, scholarship and leadership.
“Marc and Ciera are two outstanding examples of the literally thousands of high quality students enrolled at UT Tyler, and we are grateful to Rotary Club of Tyler for recognizing not only Marc and Ciera, but also recognizing representatives of all schools in East Texas,” said Patterson.
They were recognized during the Rotary Club of Tyler and Rotary Young Citizens Club Annual Awards Banquet held earlier this month at Tyler Junior College.
Rotary International is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.
One of the 15 campuses of the UT System, UT Tyler offers excellence in teaching, research, artistic performance and community service. More than 90 undergraduate and graduate degrees are available at UT Tyler, which has an enrollment of more than 6,000 high-ability students at its campuses in Tyler, Longview and Palestine.
