Supporting comments: "Clelia is one of the favorite Spanish tutors and assistants among students and faculty-members in Spanish. She can reach people easily, combining a friendly personality with clarity of goals. Clelia is intelligent and mature beyond her years. She has the ability to express herself with confidence and listen to others with sincerity. She understands how groups function. She is a pace setter who catalyzes her fellow board members and often times, even her advisor, to keep working, moving and trying new things. She has played a key role in revitalizing Student Activities Council, solidifying how the organization is structured and focusing the group on serving student needs. Because of her leadership, SAC is stronger internally and has been more focused on meeting students' desire for increased winter and weekend programming. A lasting impact on SAC will be the officer training and transition manuals she developed. She has a clear understanding of an organization as a part of Denison extending beyond any one student's four years."
