Congratulations to VEN undergrad Dragomira "Draga" Zheleva! She was awarded an Outstanding Senior Award on May 15. 

The Outstanding Senior Awards recognize graduating seniors from each major who have made an outstanding contribution to his or her learning environment through active academic engagement, whether through involvement in a research group or creative production, significant contributions to classroom discussion, leadership in student groups committed to the advancement of learning, or other intellectual pursuits with faculty and fellow students. 

The award ceremony's program had this to say about Zheleva: 

"Draga is solid academically with the top GPA of all current undergraduates in the VEN program. In addition to excelling academically, Draga is very active in the Davis Enology & Viticulture Organization as the current Treasurer as well as Vineyard Manager. She has organized field trips, volunteered for cooking duties and non-glamorous tasks at student events. She is helping to organize the major fundraiser, the Winkler Dinner, that raises funds to support international internships of students in the program. The excellence of Draga's service matches her academic record." 

We agree 100%!
