Supporting comments: "When participating in a group discussion, such as with the Denison Religious Understanding program, Lizett shows a rare level of leadership and maturity in these important conversations. She always is extremely thoughtful and considerate of others’ viewpoints. She has a unique way of getting others to ‘open up,’ which has helped to enhance the diversity and educational aspect of conversations. As a student facilitator for the QUEST 2007 program, she again was an outstanding leader with excellent facilitation skills. Whether serving in a formal leadership role or as a group participant, her dedication, reliability and good cheer will be sorely missed."
