Several college students from Waynesboro and Augusta County were honored May 6, as Bridgewater College handed out its annual awards.

Weyers Cave resident Sarah Bothof received the Major of the Year award, which was given out to students in five different fields of study. Bothof, the daughter of Steve and Donna Bothof, received the award in the field of athletic training. She also received the Most Valuable Athletic Training Student award, which is voted on by the students in the athletic training program to select the person who demonstrates leadership, integrity, dedication, dependability and personality. Each Major of the Year winner received both a plaque and monetary gift.

The acting department at the college also gave out awards, based on the students’ collective amount of work during the 2013-14 academic year. Waynesboro resident Nicholas Davies was named Best Supporting Actor. Davis, a senior English major with a minor in theater, is the son of Antony and Alison Davies.

Also during the event, the Bridgewater College Alumni Association recognized five students, including one from Augusta County. The school’s Alumni Legacy scholarships are given to rising juniors or seniors whose parents also graduated from Bridgewater College. The scholarships, valued at $2,000 each, reward loyalty of alumni who encourage their children to attend Bridgewater College, provide a sense of connection with previous generations of Bridgewater students and foster an interest in the Alumni Association and its programs. Fishersville resident Adam Butler, a sophomore majoring in health and physical education, was one of those receiving the award this year.
