HIGH POINT, N.C., May 8, 2024 – High Point University recognized the outstanding achievements of students in their academic pursuits, through campus leadership and within the community during Honors and Scholars Day ceremonies on April 16.

Several exemplary students were presented University Awards for their scholarly achievements, character, leadership, service and overall impact at HPU.

Braeden Boyle Received the University Award for Leadership

 A leader inspires change through action, and Boyle centered his involvement as a leader at HPU around philanthropy, community engagement and service. After graduation with a degree in business administration, he plans to enter the health care management industry.

Boyle is a natural leader who has impacted HPU through his leadership in service. His greatest influence can be seen through Fraternity and Sorority Life, where Boyle is a member of Beta Theta Pi, served as a two-term Inter-Fraternity Council President and was a Resident Assistant in the Greek Village for three years.

“Braeden has truly changed the way our Fraternity and Sorority Community interacts with each other and elevates any student he interacts with,” Madison Simmons, director of Fraternity and Sorority Life, said in her nomination of Boyle.

Through the Student Government Association, Boyle has demonstrated his leadership as president for the Class of 2024, the centennial class at HPHU. Additionally, he devoted countless hours to the Office of Community Standards as a student justice and associate chief justice. His mission to positively influence the HPU culture through unity can be seen from his leadership in planning the fall 2023 student concert featuring Flo Rida and as captain of the spirit committee for HPU basketball games during the 2023-2024 season.
