SOAR AWARD Description & Nominations

In 2012, members of SGA's Organization Council became frustrated when they noticed many outstanding student achievements at Elon going unnoticed. They created the SOAR award to help these high achieving phoenixes get recognized for their contributions to the campus and the community. Their belief was that recognizing and bringing awareness to a student or organization has the power to inspire counltess others.
