April 25, 2008
The UTEP Alumni Association Top Ten Seniors awards are presented to students who have achieved academic success as well as proven commitment to the community. A committee of UTEP alumni, faculty and staff select the Top Ten Seniors based on grade point average, volunteer activities and leadership.
Launiainen played basketball for four years before beginning her graduate work at UTEP. She will receive both her bachelor's in accounting and an MBA from UTEP during the May 10 commencement.
In addition to Dean's List honors, the student athlete has made the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll and the Western Athletic Conference's Academic All Conference team. Launiainen will return to Finland in May, where she hopes to work and continue playing basketball.
