Westminster's NIFA Flight Team had success at the National SafeCon convention in May 2016, marking the third year in a row that the team has made it to Nationals. The team came in 16th out of 25 teams in attendance, winning the award for the most improved team.

Rachel Darata, Ryan Furlong and Jaime Vincent each presented a research poster during the Geological Society of America Rocky Mountain section meeting in Moscow, Idaho from May 18-19, 2016. Their research focused on the timing of different eruptions in the Yellowstone Volcanic Field.  They were escorted by Dr. Tiffany Rivera, assistant professor of geology at Westminster.

Courtney-Rae Reinecke, Aimsley McLaughlin, Bailey Dunham, Jessica Rubin, Gabrielle Barker, and Claudie Jan had the chance to present their research at the Mountain West Arts Conference held May 5, 2016 at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center. Their research began in January with students serving as lead researchers on a unique Cultural Mapping Project that they hope will capture the landscape and value of arts and culture in Utah.

Neng (Vera) Shi was selected as a finalist for the internationally known Rhodes Scholar program. According to Professor Julie Stewart, "Vera was an outstanding candidate for this prestigious award, given that it rewards that rare combination of academic brilliance, moral character, commitment to others and leadership potential. Vera exemplifies all four of those traits."  Vera, an Economics major who is minoring in Sociology, is also an accomplished musician, an ethics bowl competitor and a student of the world. Congratulations Vera!
