SOLAR award recipients announced
Student leaders and organizations were recognized for their contributions to the ESF community during the recent Student Organization and Leadership Achievement Recognition Ceremony (SOLAR).
Seventy-nine nominations for the different award categories were received and approximately 130 people attended this year's ceremony.
"Thank you for celebrating all of the amazing leadership on campus and we ask that you continue to celebrate and recognize all of the recipients, nominees, and many other amazing leaders on campus," said Laura Crandall, director student involvement and leadership.
ESF student organizations reported more than 36,000 hours of travel experience of which 6,100 hours were dedicated to conferences, 11,000 to hiking and bonding, 3,000 to speakers and trainings, and 1,500 to community service. "We expect those numbers to grow before the semester ends too," said Crandall.
Crandall extended a special thank you to the staff and faculty who attended the SOLAR ceremony especially to Dr. David Newman and Dean Lombard for their support, the student speakers Kayla Conway and Karley O'Connor, and the Music Society.
