Supporting comments: "Becky put her heart and soul into campus governance because she believes so strongly in the difference students can make and the change they can enact. As a leader in the Newman Association, Becky has been a mature presence among her peers, asking for their full participation in decision making, planning and implementing events. Becky's commitment to due process and transparency in dealings with others make her a trustworthy leader. She respects the input of others while at the same time taking full responsibility for her part of the work. I have not met another Denison student so passionate about her causes, be they the Democrat party, DCGA, Catholicism or a course she is taking. Her commitments demonstrate a life committed to work that will be transformative in society, whether by public office, public policy or volunteer service."
