     Beau Carroll, an EBCI tribal member from the Yellowhill Community, recently was awarded the Outstanding Scholar Award from the College of Arts and Sciences Anthropology Department at Western Carolina University.  He recently graduated magna cum laude and was nominated for the award by his professors for his GPA, hard work and dedication to his studies. 

     “The Anthropology faculty voted on the nominees and Beau was selected through that process as our outstanding senior in Anthropology,” said Dr. Jane Eastman, associate professor.  “The selection was based on his academic performance including his high GPA, his enthusiasm for learning and his passion for archaeology.” 

     She continued, “The Dean’s office presents the awards and sponsors the award ceremony.  The faculty is very proud of Beau and look forward to having him as a colleague in the future.”
