Student Awards 2009
Amanda Morrison - 2009 WSU President's Award
Congratulations to Amanda Morrison, Class of 2011, for her selection as a recipient for the prestigious President’s Award. Less than 1% of the 25,000 WSU undergraduate, graduate and professional students at WSU are recognized for their leadership and service to WSU and its greater communities. Amanda was chosen for her extraordinary leadership efforts with the Colony Dog Enrichment Program. Amanda has significantly raised the level of awareness about colony dogs and their use. Moreover, thanks to Amanda and her colleagues’ organization and hard work, the number of students participating in the program has tripled! As a result, many animals that contribute to our teaching program have benefited – as have students. Amanda will be honored at the President’s Award Banquet on Sunday, April 26th, at 6 PM in the CUB.
