SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Nathan James Arch of Hagerstown  was among 16 Shepherd University students named McMurran Scholars, the university’s highest academic honor.

An academic convocation was held April 19 to honor the new McMurran inductees.

McMurran Scholars must complete a minimum of 92 semester hours, maintain at least a 3.8 grade-point average, complete two consecutive semesters of study at Shepherd and be nominated by at least three faculty members. Nominees must then be approved by the faculty at large. The award was created in 1961 in honor of Joseph McMurran, Shepherd’s first principal.
