Supporting comments: "Mary is not only a superb student, but she has served the Denison community in numerous ways, always leading by example. Over her three years on June Orientation staff, Mary became the model of a fine staff member. She interacted comfortably with other staff members, mentored our rookies, and modeled the best kinds of interactions with parents and entering students. Her dedication to the Denison community has been rich and varied. In all these activities, in the classroom, and in other academic settings, Mary set an example with her intelligence, maturity, and generosity with her time. More importantly, perhaps, by combining her academic prowess with her contributions to leading the community, Mary has helped set the image for the Denisonian of the future. Mary is an intellectual force without being intimidating; she excels in scholarly pursuits yet remains a pleasant, down-to-earth person. Mary has led the way in demonstrating how high academic achievement should work in tandem with involvement in a variety of activities. Moreover, Mary does it all with a smile on her face."
