Supporting comments: "Showing enviable poise, grace under pressure, and mature capacities for effective collaboration, Zara is a calm, clear force for change -- yet she leads by using well developed organizing skills, the ability to delegate, a willingness to perform any role needed, and a genuine compassion for her peers or for those her organizations serve. She empowers individuals in any group by encouraging critique and open communication so that the group can grow in cohesiveness and community. Zara steps forward to inspire groups to take on, revive, or develop projects that will affect the College as a whole as well as the surrounding community. At the same time, she has the wisdom to support the leadership of other students and to play any part that is needed when there is work to be done. She is a gifted scholar and leader who has left her mark at Denison."
