Missouri S&T was a winner at the recent annual business meeting of the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (MACURH) held Feb. 20-22 at The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minn. Missouri S&T students took home two awards.
Kristina Johnson, a freshman in architectural engineering from Blue Springs, Mo., received the First Year Experience Award for her involvement and leadership as a freshman.
Patrick Maloney, a senior in psychology from Festus, Mo., received the Distinguished Service Award for a lifetime of service to both the local residence halls and to the MACURH region.
Each award winner will represent the MACURH region at a national competition. National awards will be announced late-May.

MACURH is comprised of residence hall associations throughout Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and the Canadian province of Manitoba.
MACURH is one of eight regions affiliated with NACURH, the largest student-run non-profit organization in the United States. It promotes the educational goals of residence-hall students through discussion groups, seminars and speakers at the annual conferences, as well as other information exchanges throughout the year.
