Supporting comments: "A quiet leader who does much behind the scenes, Caitlyn is a hardworking and conscientious team player. Throughout her many internships and service activities, she assumes leadership roles acting as confidante and mentor, counselor and helper. Empathetic, outgoing and approachable, she moves easily with a wide variety of people. A balanced individual, her leadership activities extended beyond her important on-campus work through DCA, her sorority and theater. Many in the Border Studies Program in Cuernavaca and Annunciation House in El Paso will long remember her caring and vital work that so critically impacted their lives."
