This past Sunday, I was invited to the annual Student Leadership Awards Brunch present by the Office of Student Life. It was held in the Bissinger Room of the Wesley J. Howe Center. Students, faculty, and staff were present to enjoy brunch and witness the awards presentation. Everyone was dressed up in their business casual attire. The brunch was enjoyable -- we were served french toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, tots, ham, parfait, and a few cute desserts.
After enjoying brunch, Dean Nilsen and the student life staff began presenting awards. I was the first to receive the Emerging Leader Award. I did not expect to receive an award, much less be invited to the event. I was quite surprised when I found out. As each person or group went up to receive their award, the Dean said a little tidbit about each individual or group and what they do at Stevens. It was great to hear about and see everyone who brings something of their own to campus.
After being presented one of the Emerging Leader Awards, I feel motivated to continue doing my best here at Stevens. It is an honour to receive such an award. I will keep on doing what I do best as a musician here and as vice president next year for Torch Alliance.
