UM Honors Who's Who

Students at UM selected for Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges® are juniors and seniors that demonstrate exceptional leadership and scholarly ability through participation in academic and extracurricular activities, citizenship and service to Montevallo.  

Founded by Henry Pettus Randall Jr. In 1934, Who’s Who Among Students is a collegiate honors program that strives to celebrate student achievement regardless of financial ability.   

Each year, selections to the organization are made by individual schools’ committees comprised of representatives from the faculty, administration and student body.
