The Grapevine

Sophia Morabito and Antonio Pamias were among more than 200 students whose academic work was showcased during the Baldwin Wallace University Ovation 2022 Day of Excellence.

Morabito, a graduate of Holy Name High School majoring in digital media and design, presented “Choose Ohio First STEM Scholars Program – Manufacturing Tech Career Trek” during the event.

Pamias, a graduate of Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School majoring in business administration and German, presented “German Service Learning Translations” during the event.

Each spring, the Day of Excellence recognizes student success in research, scholarship, experiential learning, the arts and more. Participants must complete the submission process and have a faculty mentor who sponsors their work and gives approval to present. This year, the Day of Excellence featured student work from every school of the University.
