Emory University senior Noor Najafi is the recipient of the 2011 Lucius Lamar McMullan Award, one of Emory's highest student honors which also comes with $20,000 — no strings attached. The McMullan Award, endowed by Emory alumnus William L. Matheson in honor of his uncle, is given to a graduating senior who exhibits "outstanding citizenship, exceptional leadership and rare potential for service to his or her community, the nation and the world."

Najafi was cited by several nominators as an exceptionally innovative and creative leader and scholar. He is graduating with a religion major (and a near-perfect 3.9 GPA) in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences, and has taken part in undergraduate research with religion professor Richard Martin, and Emory Law professor Martha Duncan. He is the recipient of the Robert Woodruff Scholarship, Emory’s highest merit award, and has been inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and other honor societies.
