The George Pepperdine Award for Student Achievement

(Outstanding Senior at Senior Chapel)

This award will be given to a student who diligently pursues excellence in both the curriculum and co-curriculum. The recipient of this award will be the student who best demonstrates the ideals of Pepperdine University. This person evidences a strong Christian commitment through active participation in a local church and whose academic achievements, extracurricular activities, leadership, service to our school and potential for future achievement are decidedly above average.

The Batsell Baxter Christian Service Award 

This award will be given to the student who exemplifies, through attitudes and actions, a well-rounded dedication to Christian commitment and service for the Pepperdine community. This person should be known by fellow students and Pepperdine faculty, staff, and administrators as one whose commitment to service to our community is well above average. In addition, this student should demonstrate commitment to his/her academic pursuits, as well as other involvement in the Pepperdine community.

The Howard A. White Spirit Award 

This award will be bestowed upon a student whose enthusiasm and love for Pepperdine is shown in his or her involvement with the many aspects of University life including athletic, social, service and spiritual activities. This student's exuberance is contagious and he or she encourages fellow students to also become more involved. This student should, like Dr. White, be a consummate "cheerleader."

The Helen Pepperdine Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service 

The recipient of this award will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • The individual has a commitment to community service that is "second nature" to his/her character.
  • The individual's service is beyond his/her job description or appointed role on campus – the service is beyond the normal call of duty.
  • The individual performs service to the community without any expectation for recognition or credit.
  • The individual's actions support the belief that community service is integral to his/her intellectual, social, and spiritual development.
