Wilmington College senior Emilia L. Knisley, of Rammel Road, Lynchburg, was recently inducted into Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Recognition for this honor was given at the 36th annual Student Honors Convocation held recently.

Who’s Who is a national program that affords colleges the opportunity to recognize seniors at their campus who have a grade point average of 2.75 or better and who have demonstrated significant leadership and/or service to the college and/or community during his or her enrollment.

Additionally, Knisley was inducted into the Wilmington College Green Key Honor Society.

Green Key at Wilmington College was founded in May 1951. It was organized to recognize superior scholarship by students from WC in the years following accreditation by the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges in 1944.

Juniors and seniors become eligible for Green Key membership upon the completion of 75 or 90 semester hour, respectively, with grade point averages of 3.75 and 3.50, respectively. Graduates once eligible for membership may be initiated at any time.
