Two Knights Receive UCF's Highest Honor

ORLANDO, Fla. ( – A pair of UCF student-athletes have been awarded the highest honor and most prestigious award a UCF student can receive. Adrienne Li and Angelo Baldado have been named as 2019 Order of Pegasus recipients.


Li and Baldado will add women’s soccer and spirit, respectively, to the list of athletic programs with an Order of Pegasus recipient. The duo also mark the fourth consecutive year that a student-athlete has been among the recipients, and it’s the third time in the last four years with multiple honorees.

Undergraduate students are chosen for Order of Pegasus each year based on their outstanding achievement in the areas of academic achievement, university involvement, leadership and community service. Graduate students are selected based on the same merits as well as publication or research experiences. Because of the breadth of accomplishments required for this award, the Order of Pegasus is the highest student award that can be attained at the university.


The winners will be honored at an April 10 ceremony.


The names and a picture of the inductees will be added to the wall showcasing past and current recipients in the Pegasus Lounge on the second floor of the Student Union. Inductees also receive commemorative medals and scholarships from the Student Government Association.
