HACKETTSTOWN, NJ—Centenary University has announced the recipients of this year’s Student Leadership Awards, with 29 students receiving accolades and one advisor receiving the Advisor of the Year Award.  Maryland residents from Perry Hall and Columbia were recognized this year.

The annual awards ceremony, which was held on April 15, recognized outstanding contributions to the university and surrounding communities.
