Supporting comments: "It is hard to overstate Laurel's accomplishments as a leader in the classroom. Having served as a research or teaching assistant in three different departments, she has received every major award that a Biology major could attain. A person of very highest integrity, responsibility, and compassion, these qualities have found their expression in her service to the college. Dedicated to upholding high expectations for a civil and just campus where interactions are marked by integrity, Laurel's sense of responsibility and compassion for the welfare of her peers is evident. With her quiet and steady leadership talents, she has demonstrated the ability to communicate and work effectively with faculty, administrators and her fellow students and has justly earned their deep respect."
