This past Friday night we held our annual Club Leadership Awards.
For this event each Club advisor nominates one student to receive an award for outstanding leadership displayed through their role within the executive board throughout their term.
The assumption sometimes can be that the President of the Club wins the award 99.9% of the time, however, there are times where the vice president, treasurer, and/or secretary can even win the award. Why you ask? Well that’s simple to answer because sometimes the leader is only as strong as its team.
Undoubtedly, there were many awards given to various position holders from clubs however even when the President of the Club won he or she took the time to thank and call up their other executive board members to showcase the power of a team.
This award ceremony is always special to me, my fellow co-workers and my supervisor, but this year was extra special for me. Indeed, this years award winners held many of the students I have helped transition and guide through Bergen. These are the students I first began working with when I began my internship at Bergen. They have impacted my role at Bergen from intern to full time staff as much as I hope to say I’ve impacted them. This graduating class holds a special place in my heart as they are my first true graduating class.
I am not afraid to say that I will shed a tear or two of happiness and sadness, for me, on May 16th when they graduate.
However, as these students transition on I look forward to the next group of students that I get the honor and privilege to work with at Bergen.
How do you celebrate your students on campus?
