Angelica May Sovida Bautista of Suffolk, who graduated in December from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, was recently honored for outstanding academic achievement during the fall semester.
Bautista earned one of the college’s top academic honors, a Gold Star. Gold Stars are presented to students who achieve a 3.7 grade point average or higher during a semester’s course work. Gold Stars are worn on the collar of the cadet full dress and dress uniforms and the summer leave uniform.
Gold Star recipients will be recognized during a military dress parade Jan. 25.
Bautista also was named to the dean’s list for the fall semester.
Dean’s list recognition is given to those students whose grade point average is 3.2 or higher with no grade below a C for the previous semester’s work.
Bautista was a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
