Vuković recognized with Mary Frances Warde Award

Mount Mercy graduate Vladimir Vuković '13, of Ruma, Serbia, received the Mary Frances Warde Award during Mount Mercy's commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 19. The award is the highest honor given to a student who transferred into Mount Mercy and has acquired a minimum of 30 credit hours at the university. The award is conferred upon the graduate who, in addition to a high scholastic rating (3.0 or above), has exemplified to a marked degree cooperation with administration, faculty, and students; integrating in his/her personal relationships; and leadership and loyalty in furthering the ideals of Mount Mercy. The award is named for Mary Frances Warde, who founded the Sisters of Mercy in America in 1843.

Vuković was involved in basketball, track and field. A native of Ruma, Serbia, Vuković studied management and minored in economics at Mount Mercy. He's been named to the Dean's List, was awarded the Most Improved Player during the 2012-2013 men's basketball season, and was part of the men's basketball team that traveled to the NAIA national tournament in 2013.

He transferred to Mount Mercy after studying at a community college in Maryland for two years. After taking the summer off to return to Serbia, he hopes to return to the United States and begin looking for a job while pursuing his master's degree. He believes the education he received at Mount Mercy has given him a unique opportunity to stand apart from others and demonstrate quality leadership skills.
