Maryland Independent - - Front Page -

The Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land rec­og­nized stu­dents for their lead­er­ship, in­volve­ment in the col­lege com­mu­nity and im­pact within South­ern Mary­land at the an­nual Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion (SGA) Ban­quet May 12 at Mid­dle­ton Hall in Wal­dorf.

The Pres­i­dent’s Cup was pre­sented to Heather Mur­phy, Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent for her self­less lead­er­ship and the ben­e­fit she has been to the Prince Fred­er­ick Stu­dent As­so­ci­a­tion.

“Heather can at­tribute her strong stu­dent lead­er­ship skills to her high level of con­fi­dence,” said CSM Prince Fred­er­ick Cam­pus Stu­dent Ser­vices Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Lydia Wil­liams in a press re­lease. “She is very self-as­sured and re­silient. She never seeks credit or ac­co­lades. This con­fi­dence shows in how she treats oth­ers. Whether they are a col­lege of­fi­cial, a stu­dent, or a ven­dor with whom she is ne­go­ti­at­ing, Heather is al­ways eth­i­cal, hon­est and re­li­able.”

The Vice Pres­i­dent’s Cup was pre­sented to Venice Miller of Hol­ly­wood, a gen­eral stud­ies ma­jor at CSM who grad­u­ated in May.

“When Venice walks across the stage to re­ceive her com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­gree, the staff and stu­dents on the Leonard­town Cam­pus will be filled with great joy, re­spect and af­fec­tion for some­one who is so tal­ented and spe­cial,” said Leonard­town Cam­pus Stu­dent Life Co­or­di­na­tor Jen­nifer VanCory at the May 12 event. “CSM couldn’t have a bet­ter am­bas­sador to en­ter the com­mu­nity. She truly em­bod­ies what it means to ‘Go Be­yond.’”

The Stu­dent Em­ployee of the Year Award was pre­sented to Maria Estevez of White Plains, the La Plata Stu­dent As­so­ci­a­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

“This stu­dent as­sis­tant has worked for the Stu­dent Life of­fice for a lit­tle over a year. In that time, she has as­sisted my­self and my temp in re­vamp­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the of­fice as well as the sep­a­rate re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of each in­di­vid­ual stu­dent as­sis­tant. She has taken those who strug­gle with or­ga­ni­za­tion un­der her wing and en­cour­aged them to at­tend some of the train­ings of­fered by CSM as well as to help them to grow their per­sonal or­ga­ni­za­tion style,” said Anya Pat­ter­son, La Plata Cam­pus Stu­dent Life co­or­di­na­tor.

The Club of the Year was pre­sented to the Ed­u­ca­tors Ris­ing Club. Dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son, this club worked within the com­mu­nity to col­lect items for chil­dren in the Head Start pro­gram in Charles County, em­body­ing CSM’s spirit of ser­vice be­yond the cam­pus and into the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity.
