Supporting comments: "I have come to know Lynn as one of the kindest, friendliest, most respectful students in the department, if not the university; she has proved to be a leader in her sorority, in the theatre department, in the university, and in the community; what strikes me in particular, are the contributions Lynn has made to and through theatre while at Denison; while many students are merely concerned with being cast in large roles, or serving in important technical positions, Lynn has demonstrated over and over again that her first concern is using theatre to help others; she has served as the Co-Chair of the After School Drama Club, a teacher with the Creative Drama Workshop in Granville, and founded and developed the Newark Alternative Academy Summer Theatre program; in all three of these programs, Lynn has served as a key leader, teaching Granville students, Newark students, and "at risk" students to use theater to develop themselves as students, as people, and as artists in a field that all too often sees individuals focusing on developing only themselves; Lynn is an amazing student who sees theatre as a way to help others improve the community, help young people who are in trouble, and teach students about themselves and the world; she exemplifies the best use of a liberal arts education; she has taken her major field and found a way to make it relevant and useful within the community; her dedication to the theatre and to education has not only made her a leader in the traditional sense of holding positions of leadership, but Lynn has also developed and created opportunities that did not previously exist and her commitment to them has enhanced the quality of life at Denison and in Licking County; she serves as an example of the power of theatre as a social and educational tool; Lynn is one of the finest leaders Denison has produced in recent memory, and her actions and activities deserve our respect and attention, though she herself would never call attention to them."
