Supporting comments: "Leading by example, Steve's quiet confidence, integrity, and patience make him the natural focus of any group. He is the rare sort of person who leaves any situation better than when he found it. He has made a lasting impact with his work both at Denison and in the Granville community. I have seen Steve's leadership in action in the laboratory and in group work settings. Steve wants to get the job done, and get it done well; he does not give anything less than his best. Some strong students do not work well with others, lacking the patience to allow their work to be mixed with others. Steve has always improved any group he participated in, bringing his classmates up to his high standards while gaining their respect. His work with the fire department is a clear example both of how well he reacts to pressure and also his commitment to what he feels is socially responsible and right. It is clear, even through his modesty, that Steve is the person the other volunteers looked to for guidance."
