The Class of 2013 Senior Honor Men and Women of Wichita State University were honored at a banquet Tuesday, April 9, at the Wichita Country Club.

Being named a Senior Honor Man or Woman is one of the most prestigious honors a WSU student can receive.

Since the program's inception in 1917, more than 1,050 students have been selected for the honor. Less than one percent of all Wichita State students receive this distinction.

Selection is based on a student's commitment to academic excellence, their involvement on campus and contribution to the community, academic standing and oral and written communication skills.

Six men and six women have been selected for this year's honor.

  • Diana Carbajal, 2006 graduate of Universidad del Valle de Atemajac, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
  • Luis Carbajal, 2003 graduate of Magic Valley High School, Twin Falls, Idaho
