Fresno State student wins Hearst Award

William Thomas "Tommy" Daly, a senior political science major from Lancaster, is California State University, Fresno's 2010 recipient of a William R. Hearst/California State University Trustees Award for Outstanding Achievement.

The award is given to students -- one from each of the 23 CSU campuses -- who have demonstrated financial need, experienced personal hardship and shown exemplary academic performance, community service and personal achievement.

The award is among the CSU's highest recognitions for student achievement. Daly and other recipients will be recognized at Tuesday's CSU board of trustees meeting in Long Beach.
