Annual NEO Honors Banquet recognizes nearly 300 students for their academic accomplishments.

MIAMI - Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) recently held the annual NEO Honors Banquet to highlight the academic success of some of NEO’s best and brightest student.

On March 12, Miami resident and attorney GeorgeAnn Roye gave the keynote address following a meal to honor the high-achieving students. Nearly 300 students were recognized for their academic accomplishments, including Deans’ Honor Rolls, President’s Honor Roll, Phi Theta Kappa, NEO Top Ten Freshmen, the NEO Honors Program, and the Carl Rigney Award.

Roye noted that there were two major questions students needed to ask themselves in order to improve their own lives and society: what and how?

"The ‘what’ is to leave more wood on the woodpile,” said Roye. “Strive to live your life in a way in which you leave more than you take. How do you accomplish this? Get the memo and take it seriously that it’s not about you. It’s about what we can all do together to make things better for everyone. You are in the best position to leave more wood on the woodpile of life.”
