On Friday, April 13 Butler University announced the names of its “Top 100” students. Carla Black from Fishers, Ind. was named “The Most Outstanding Woman.”
The Butler University Alumni Association sponsors the Outstanding Student Recognition Program to pay tribute to the talent and dedication that characterizes Butler students.
The 100 Recipients are nominated by students, faculty and staff members for their outstanding character, scholarship and leadership. The program seeks those who give unselfishly of themselves and who are highly regarded by the entire University community.
Black, a senior, is a pre-med double major in music and Spanish. She is a member of four national honor societies: Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Eta Sigma, Alpha Lambda Delta and Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society. She plays in the 1st Violin Section under the direction of Professor Richard Auldon in the Butler Symphony Orchestra and is the principal 2nd Violin in the Butler Chamber Orchestra. Black is also a member of Butler’s Pre-Medical Society and a volunteer interpreter for the Trinity Free Clinic in Carmel, Ind. Black was recently accepted into medical school and hopes to use her Spanish background to serve patients who do not speak English as a first language.
