Ten seniors are selected each year from a University of Tulsa Alumni Association panel for their exceptional achievement in academics and community engagement; among the Top 10 is Claire Chapman, Chillicothe.
According to a press release from the school, Chapman is a biology major in the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences. Through work on the Honors Program Selection Committee, as a University Ambassador and as an Orientation Leader, she has supported students in every stage of their TU journey. Further, as executive director of Homecoming for Student Association and as a Future Alumni Council member, she has connected students to new and old traditions. Chapman is currently the chief executive officer of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and chief justice of the Student Association, and she was nominated as a Top 10 Freshman in 2017. In her spare time, she volunteers in Tulsa with Reading Partners, Special Olympics, St. John Medical Center and Good Samaritan Health Services, as well as in Honduras through World Gospel Mission. She hopes to become a bilingual physician and take care of patients the way TU teaches students to take care of each other.
