Chancellor’s Leadership Award honors graduates
Each semester, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s best and brightest student leaders are presented with the Chancellor’s Leadership Award. This spring, 18 students from the College of Professional Studies have been selected for this honor. These students are a select group of graduating seniors who throughout their careers at the UWSP have contributed significant leadership, demonstrated campus and/or community service and shown a commitment to personal growth.
The Chancellor’s Leadership Award was developed at the urging of Chancellor Lee Sherman Dreyfus in 1978. Until then, the only award given to graduates for their university career achievements was the Albertson Award. Since relatively few met the qualifications for an Albertson Award, Chancellor Dreyfus was concerned that the last thing many of our graduates heard from the university after years of contributions was that they had lost. He felt all who had provided significant service to the university community should receive some honor, and from that annual pool, the Albertson Award should be selected.
All 49 university honorees were recognized at the Chancellor’s Leadership Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 23 in the Laird Room of the Dreyfus University Center. This year also marked the 35th year of the award as former award recipients were recognized during the ceremony.
Congratulations to all award winners!
