Supporting comments: "Demonstrating wisdom and maturity, Elizabeth embodies the best of what a Denison student can become. When she became president of the Spanish honorary, Sigma Delta Pi, she demonstrated a quiet charisma in waking members from years of routine ceremonies. Her leadership resulted in working with La Fuerza Latina in a strong collaborative effort and partnership to collect funds for a school building in the town of San Julián, in Costa Rica. True leaders are those who create open spaces where others can thrive. Elizabeth has demonstrated an immense energy and talent to work efficiently and simultaneously in positions of high responsibility while always maintaining sight of the big picture."
