Supporting comments: "Kim has actively and enthusiastically cultivated relationships throughout the student body and with faculty and staff. She easily engages others across race, class, gender, ethnicity and other social differences. She is warm and honest in her interpersonal dealings, accepting of self and others, and puts others at ease with her distinct combination of directness and southern charm. Kim's relentless enthusiasm toward an idea or project encourages other students to volunteer, get involved, and follow her lead. Since 2002, she chaired the A-Team, an after-school tutoring and mentoring program for disadvantaged children. Since her involvement, student participation increased by 200%. She wrote a successful proposal to Target and Kroger to receive food and monetary donations for the Easter Egg Hunt in Newark in which 75 children participated. In many ways, Kim is a 'natural' leader. The Denison community will miss her contributions but will benefit by the mark she leaves behind and the mentoring and role-modeling she demonstrated for others."
