Hello faithful readers!
This morning I was privileged to be invited to the Student Leadership Awards Brunch. Held in the Bissinger Room on the fourth floor of the Howe Center, it was a very classy event aimed at recognizing the leadership of students and faculty on campus. There were a number of awards given, some to recognize up-and-coming leaders (particular kudos to my residents in Lore-El that were honored), some to recognize distinguished student leaders, some to recognize leaders dedicated to volunteering, and some to recognize the tireless work that the staff and faculty do.
Note: All of the recipients were nominated by the student body.
It was an honor to be invited as part of Gear & Triangle and also because I was fortunate enough to receive an individual award as well, a Distinguished Leader Award. I am thankful not only for the recognition but also because I got a sweet plaque too!
After four years of being an active student leader, an event like this is extremely rewarding and is a great way to end my collegiate career. Although the recognition isn't why other students or I get involved, it is an honor to be recognized for the work we're doing on campus. I hope that the initiatives that my fellow classmates and I have started continue in the future.
