Southern Illinois University Carbondale will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, to announce a major national honor awarded to several SIUC students. Chancellor Samuel Goldman and the students will be on hand to discuss the recognition, which is awarded to a select group of students nationwide. SIUC is one of only a handful of universities to have multiple recipients of this honor. Reporters, photographers and news crews are welcome to cover the news conference, set for the third-floor rotunda in Morris Library. Release of the information is embargoed until Wednesday at the request of the national organization that is honoring the students.
