Supporting comments: "Ana's intellectual and political understanding coupled with her joy in her work make her an exemplary and effective leader, and her dedication to her ideals will leave a lasting mark on Denison. Her most significant contributions to Denison are her work at the Homestead and on the Denison University recycling program. Ana's insight, attitude, and energy have been vital to the Homestead during the past three years. She put together the necessary information from Denison records to contact the over 200 Denison alumni who had lived at the Homestead and participated in a major archival project to put together 25 years of Homestead history. She helped to organize, facilitate, and document the weekend's activities that included planting the orchard and feeding over 100 people. Ana is also an important moral force at the Homestead and on the Denison campus. She insists on grappling with the moral implications of group behaviors and choices. In all of her work, Ana helps others to think through the purposes and strategies of their organizing efforts. She worked as president and founder of the recent Denison University and Granville Recycling Program. The great strength of her activism is in her breadth of vision, the completeness with which it fills her life, and the joy and warmth with which she pursues her goals. Many at Denison will miss her enthusiasm, her compassion, and her energy for learning and for making the world better."
