by Mari Pizzini–Lindsay Williams has been chosen as Morningside College’s November Student of the Month. The college’s chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) cast their votes in Williams’ favor at their November 10th meeting.
Student of the Month is awarded to a Morningside student who shows dedication to the college through their involvement both on campus and off. Students are nominated by peers in ODK and cannot be a member of the chapter.
Williams is currently active in the Iowa Student Education Association (ISEA), Teachers Inspiring Exceptional Students (T.I.E.S.), Residence Life, Photo Club, and the Student Ambassador Program.
Off campus, Williams is involved with Wired – Middle School Ministry and United College Ministry, both affiliated with Sunnybrook Community Church.
“When I got the email about Student of the Month,” Williams said, “I was very surprised and excited.”
Williams says that her busy college schedule has brought into perspective the fast pace of college life.
“With being involved in a variety of activities, I need to focus on keeping a healthy balance,” Williams said, “It’s so easy to get caught up with the pace of life and the busyness of a college schedule, and these years will be gone before we know it so I want to enjoy as much of them as I can.”
Williams finished by expressing her belief that everyone should get involved on campus.
“I would give all students the advice to get involved because it truly makes an impact on your experience in college. It not only helps prepare you for things outside of school, but it helps build this sense of campus unity.”
