UCF has named 20 students as recipients of the Order of Pegasus, the university’s most prestigious student award.

The 2014 recipients include 13 LEAD Scholars, 10 students from The Burnett Honors College, eight from the President’s Leadership Council, six Student Government Association leaders, two Greek students and one student-athlete.

Undergraduate students are chosen for Order of Pegasus each year based on their outstanding achievement in the areas of academic achievement, university involvement, leadership and community service. Graduate students are selected based on the same merits as well as publication or research experiences.

The winners will be honored at a ceremony this spring.

The names and a picture of the inductees will be added to the wall showcasing past and present Order of Pegasus recipients in the Pegasus Lounge located on the second floor of the Student Union. Inductees also receive commemorative medals, scholarships from the Student Government Association and lifetime memberships to the UCF Alumni Association.
