Mosman Receives ISU Student Award
AMES, Iowa - The Iowa State University Alumni Association has selected Shellie Mosman of Carroll, Iowa, as one of five 2009 recipients of the university’s prestigious Wallace E. Barron All-University Senior Award, which recognizes outstanding seniors who display high character, outstanding achievement in academics and university/community activities, and promise for continuing these qualities as alumni.
Mosman, a senior in accounting with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average, is a junior on the ISU’s women’s basketball team who was named to the Big 12 Conference’s Good Works Team in winter 2008 and is a recipient of the Cyclone High Scholar Athlete Award. She currently serves as co-vice president of the Student Athlete Advisory Council and as a member of the Athletics Advisory Council.

The Wallace E. Barron All-University Senior Award has been presented annually to deserving Iowa State students since 1968. The award is named for Wallace E. “Red” Barron, a 1928 ISU graduate, who served as Iowa State’s director of alumni affairs from 1937 to 1968. Awardees receive recognition at two official ceremonies and receive the Official Iowa State University Ring compliments of the ISU Alumni Association.
