Everett Derryberry Leadership Award
The Everett Derryberry Award was established to recognize an outstanding graduating Tennessee Tech University student. The award, presented annually, goes to a senior who has exhibited scholastic attainment arising out of moral and intellectual integrity; successful campus activity where participating indicates commitment to good citizenship, interest in one's fellow man, and instincts for leadership; and physical vigor as shown by fondness for and success in sports. The late President Emeritus Everett Derryberry upon his retirement established this award which is modeled after the Rhodes Scholarship. He served 34 years as the university's fourth president.
