Supporting comments: "An outstanding student and musician, Nate provides a visible and impressive presence on our campus. In all of his activities, he has consistently demonstrated great energy and enthusiasm. Much of his leadership style appears to work by example: a calm demeanor, an intelligent approach to problems, an inclusive attitude to committee work. He displays a genuine compassion for his fellow human beings, as witnessed by his choice of projects involving various relief efforts for the homeless and hungry. Nate was often the "conscience" of DCA cabinet, pointing out where leadership was needed. He made it his business to know where volunteers needed extra support, and what cabinet needed to do for them so that the organization continually moved forward. Nate has been an organizer for Hunger/Homelessness Week for the past two years. He received the President's Student Service Award two years in a row for over 100 hours of service in the community during the academic year. At the same time, he has played saxophone for the Denison Jazz Ensemble and Heisey Wind Ensemble. Nate really sees beyond his own interests, and always works for the good of the larger organization. His impact on DCA and the Service Orientation will be felt for a long time."
