Four alumni from the University of Delaware College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) were recognized at the college's annual year-end ceremony for their excellence, dedication and support.
"This wonderful group represents excellence in arts and sciences, and their commitment to our college helps strengthen our mission, vision and impact," said Dean George Watson.
The award winners are as follows:

She spent the next 30 years working for Armstrong World Industries in a variety of capacities, including research, government regulations and human resources. Upon retirement, she has been involved in consulting, property management and property renovation.
She and her husband John Hale have made a charitable gift to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry to create the Carolyn C. Kent and John R. Hale Fellowship to provide graduate students studying chemistry with the financial assistance they need to ensure success. They are members of the University's Delaware Diamonds Society and the Carillon Circle.

She serves as president of the fundraising women's group for Johns Hopkins Medical Hospital and is a current member of the board of trustees at Johns Hopkins.
Bosley and her husband, David L. Warnock, a member of UD's Class of 1980, established a biannual Warnock-Bosley lecture series to bring European scholars to the University of Delaware's campus, and a Warnock-Bosley graduate fellowship to award support to an outstanding graduate student completing his or her dissertation. Both are members of the University's Delaware Diamonds Society and Pillar Society.
