John Cabot University Celebrates 2020 Student Award Winners

John Cabot University is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Student Awards, which recognize academic and service excellence among graduating seniors. In keeping with JCU tradition, the awards are usually presented in April by the President, Dean of Academic Affairs, and Dean of Students during a ceremony on the beautiful Secchia Terrace. Says President Franco Pavoncello, “Unfortunately, last spring was the height of the Italian lockdown during the pandemic and the abrupt move to online classes made it impossible to host an in-person ceremony. We surely regret this, but wish to recognize the 2020 winners for their outstanding achievement, which makes all of us at JCU very proud.”

Congratulations to all the winners!
