August 08, 2011

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Elli Vandegrift, daughter of Craig and Michele Vandegrift of Middletown, Md., was recently named a 2010-11 Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Elli, a new media publishing major, is a graduate of Middletown High School.

Outstanding Undergraduate Scholarship Awards are presented to students who have achieved the distinction of maintaining a minimum university grade-point average of 3.85 out of a possible 4.0, and completed at least 125 quarter credit hours of study, nearly two-thirds of the credit hours required for a baccalaureate degree. Selection is also based on other factors complementing academic achievement, such as creative work, service on student committees, civic activities, employment and independent research.

Each RIT scholar receives a bronze medallion representing the traditional symbols for wisdom and respect — the Athenian owl and the olive branch.
