Harrisonburg resident Camndon Reed has been named to the President’s List at James Madison University for the spring 2024 semester. He graduated from Watertown High School. Students who earn president’s list honors must carry at least 12 graded credit hours and earn a GPA of 3.900 or above. Reed is majoring in Engineering


A total of 2,226 undergraduate students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) achieved the criteria required for the university’s spring 2024 Dean’s List. The criteria for the WPI Dean’s List differs from that of most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA). Instead, WPI defines the Dean’s List by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.

“WPI’s academic programs are rigorous and require a level of independence beyond what is required in traditional courses. WPI students work on open-ended problems for communities around the world. The problems are important and the impact is real” said Professor Arthur C. Heinricher. “Some of this nation’s best and brightest students come to WPI to study engineering and science and business and the humanities. Those named to the Dean’s List have excelled in all of their work, and we are exceptionally proud of these outstanding students.”

The following students were named to the Dean’s List for Spring 2024:

Kaitlyn Fitzpatrick, of Watertown, Massachusetts, class of 2027, majoring in Biomedical Engineering

Aidan Flanagan, of Watertown, Massachusetts, class of 2026, majoring in Civil Engineering
