Perkins returned to BSC in the fall of 2015, to take advantage of the newly started Bachelor of Science in Management program. She was nominated by multiple faculty members for the honors of BSC’s “Outstanding Graduate.” 

One said “It is evident that she will excel in any educational endeavor she desires”. Another added, “She works not only with enthusiasm for learning, but also with an attention to detail and a writing skill far superior to that of her peers.” 

Last year, Perkins won the “Most Outstanding Student” award, and this year is recognized as the “Outstanding Graduate.” 

Perkins is one of BSC’s first graduates for the Bachelor of Science in Management program.  She graduated on May 6, with 3.85 GPA (Magna Cum Laude).
