Natalia Perea Adams of Santa Barbara Earns SMU’s Multicultural Academic Achievement Award

Natalia Perea Adams, a resident of Santa Barbara, received the Award of Achievement at the 24th annual Southern Methodist University Multicultural Academic Achievement Ceremony.

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs recognizes the academic achievement of minority students who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above.

To be recognized with the Award of Achievement, a student must have a grade point average of 3.5 to 3.749.

During a March 2 ceremony, SMU President R. Gerald Turner welcomed faculty, staff, students and their families. He commented on the great work minority students have done and are doing at SMU. Several students shared their experiences in academics and leadership activities.

Devean Owens, an SMU Hunt Scholar majoring in public relations and advertising, served as the keynote speaker.

"I challenge you to find your voice and step outside your comfort zone," Owens said. "Be intentional in your actions and be the change you wish to see at SMU as well as in the world around you."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
