CBE student Chase Toth is one of seven seniors recognized for their academic achievement, leadership, and outstanding service with the university’s highest student honor: The Torchbearer award.
Toth is a Chancellor’s Honors Program student. As a student coordinator for the VOLbreaks Program, he has led groups of his peers on trips to engage in hands-on, direct service while exploring the root causes of homelessness and poverty, along with sustainability practices. He also served as an Ignite team leader and student director, and a member of the Leadership Knoxville Scholars program.
He and the other six students learned of their selection through a surprise visit by the chancellor or a member of his cabinet in recent weeks. They will receive a Torchbearer medal during the Chancellor’s Honors Banquet on Tuesday, April 16. The banquet is the university’s largest recognition event of the year.
