Olivia Kilian to receive President's Student Leadership and Service Award
Olivia Kilian, a third-year veterinary student, has been chosen to receive the University of Minnesota 2010 President's Student Leadership and Service Award (PSLSA).
"The PSLSA is a well-deserved recognition of your efforts to strengthen the University community and a wonderful affirmation of the value of your leadership and service to University faculty, staff, and students," wrote Robert H. Bruininks, president, in a letter to Olivia. In the nomination letter submitted by Laura Molgaard, associate dean for academic and student affairs, and Deb Wingert, director of educational development, Olivia was praised for her leadership and service, particularly her goal orientation, appreciation of differences, and tolerance of ambiguity.
Olivia will receive the award at a banquet to be held on May 3 in Coffman Memorial Union. For more information about the President's Student Leadership and Service Award, visit www.sua.umn.edu/involvement/awards/pslsa.php.
