ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Seniors Sarah Mackenzie Helms and Jonathan Derek Logan received the Tillman Award at Winthrop University’s spring Commencement exercises on May 9 at Winthrop Coliseum.

Acting President Debra Boyd presented the two the Tillman Award, which is the university’s highest academic honor. Established in 1940 to honor former S.C. Governor Benjamin Ryan Tillman, the award recognizes the graduate who has most consistently met the demands of academic excellence.

Helms is an education major from Charleston, South Carolina, who will seek her master’s degree in education from Winthrop. Logan, an exercise science major from Rock Hill, will work as a personal trainer in his hometown.

The two were among more than 550 students who received their degrees at the ceremony.
