As a result of winning the Walker Cup, Flores will speak on behalf of the senior class at DePauw's commencement on Sunday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m. in Holton Memorial Quadrangle.

Flores is an anthropology major and women's studies minor at DePauw, where he is a Bonner Scholar. The senior's other activities include serving as vice president of student East College tall xzgovernment and as a Compton Center intern, a DePauw Environmental Policy Project intern, a sustainability intern, and as a domestic violence intern for Putnam County Family Support Services.

"My time and experiences have been the most formative, the most transformative, and probably the best years of my life here at DePauw," Flores said as he received the Walker Cup.  "This is just a symbol of something that's greater than myself -- this is an award for everyone who has been a part of my life and who has made this DePauw experience worthwhile, enjoyable ... This is not me, this is you."
