STLCOP Honors Student Leaders

Published on 25 April 2016

The College recognized students at its annual Student Leadership Recognition Program and Reception on Thursday, April 14. Student leaders were honored for their involvement in student organizations and dedication to serving the community locally, nationally, and internationally.

President John A. Pieper and Terry Seaton, president of American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), recognized student leaders’ impact on the campus community. Mackenzie Steck, Student Government Association (SGA) president, acknowledged that student leaders put others before their own personal gains. She explained that putting others first is one of the attributes that make STLCOP students stand out as leaders.

“You will touch more lives than you will ever know, and that is worth more than awards or prizes,” Steck said.

The evening continued with speeches from Toni McMurphy, vice president of culture and campus life; Kim Kilgore, dean of arts and sciences; and Bruce Canaday, dean of pharmacy and professor of pharmacy practice.

“I want STLCOP to be a place where everyone wants everyone else to succeed,” McMurphy said.

Susan Mueller, director of writing center and assistant professor of English; Anne Brackett, director of residential life; Erin Boswell, director of undergraduate student services; Rebecca Jones, director of academic support and adjunct instructor; Kimberly Hill, assistant director of academic support presented the Student Leadership Awards to cheers and applause.
