Outstanding Senior Leaders


Pandora Yearbook’s Outstanding Senior Leader award honors senior students who have gone above and beyond in their commitment to leadership, academics, campus involvement, and community service. This distinction is given to students who have upheld the traditions of UGA while making positive contributions to the greater Athens community. Winners of this award are recognized and honored for the legacy and last impact they left at UGA.

Students who earn this distinction are given a one page spread in the yearbook highlighting their accomplishments and contributions to UGA. In addition to this, they participate in a professional photoshoot for university publication, receive invitations to be recognized at the Student Organization Achievement Awards, and are provided with a free copy of the yearbook.
