King’s is proud of the hard work and dedication displayed by the 2019 King’s Gold Medal Award winners, who received their awards on June 19, 2019, at Spring Convocation. Gold Medal Awards are given to the graduate in each category with the highest average in the last year of their module to recognize outstanding academic achievement.
