Northeastern University celebrated the highest achievements of students, faculty, and staff at the sixth annualAcademic Honors Convocation on Thursday afternoon in East Village.
The event honors a select few who channel their extraordinary talents into transformative research and scholarship, exceptional teaching and mentoring, and innovation in higher education—both on campus and around the globe.
Three members of the Northeastern community—Nina Angeles, SSH’15,Kelsey Burnhans, SSH’16, and Esther Laaninen, SSH’16—earned Fulbright Fellowships, which provide grants for individually designed research projects or for English Teaching Assistant programs. As Mantella said, “These Northeastern students are accomplished, entrepreneurial, and highly engaged scholars. They have become true global citizens. They transform ideas into impact.”
