Daniel M. Flores has been awarded the Nevada Centennial Medallion for the 1999-2000 academic year -- a prestigious academic honor bestowed each year on the graduating UNLV senior with the highest grade point average.
The award is co-sponsored by the Las Vegas Rotary Club and UNLV.
Flores, who graduated in August 1999 from UNLV's College of Fine Arts with a bachelor of arts degree in music, earned a 4.0 grade point average. A 4.0 is a perfect average.
Flores was presented the medal earlier this month.
A 1991 graduate of Woods Cross High School, he is from Bountiful, Utah. He is the son of L.M. and Josephine Flores.
