Computer Science Outstanding Senior Awards: Caleb Kisby
Computer Information Systems Outstanding Senior Award: George Clayton
Computer Engineering Outstanding Senior Award: Boyd Compton
Computer Engineering SCSPE Award: Wesley Cherry

All awardees will be honored at the University Awards Day ceremony. In addition, Wesley will be honored at a special awards banquet of the South Carolina Society of Professional Engineers.
