Seven UT students have been recognized for their academic achievement, leadership, and outstanding service with the university’s highest student honor—the Torchbearer award. The students were recently notified of their selection with surprise visits from Chancellor Beverly Davenport and other UT administrators while in class, in student organization meetings, and even in their coach’s office. They will receive a Torchbearer medal during the Chancellor’s Honors Banquet on Wednesday, April 19. The event is the university’s largest recognition event of the year.
