Supporting comments: "An outstanding role model and leader, Laura gets the job done while also building relationships and rapport with others. Serving as co-chair of the Fraternity/Sorority Presidents' Forum, she was especially impressive in translating programs and conversations from women's programming to her leadership in the sorority community. As the LeaderShape graduate intern, Laura not only was an effective mentor for her peers, she was an invaluable resource in interpreting Denison student culture for faculty participants. Laura helped guide SHARE (Sexual Harassment and Rape Educators) into becoming an official student organization, created executive board positions, held elections, and is currently organizing campus-wide programming. With an uncommon commitment to social justice, Laura will leave an important legacy for future Denisonians."
