Wallace E. Barron All-University Senior Award
The Iowa State University Alumni Association established this award in 1968 to recognize outstanding seniors who display high character, outstanding achievement in academics and university/community activities, and promise for continuing these exemplary qualities as alumni. The award is named for Wallace E. "Red" Barron (Class of '28), who served as director of alumni affairs at Iowa State from 1937 to 1968. Awardees receive recognition and the Official Iowa State University Ring, compliments of the ISU Alumni Association. Applications and more information can be found here.
