Meghan Kolf, of Douglas, was among seven finalists for the Rosemarie Martha Spitaleri Award as the University of Wyoming's outstanding graduating woman.

The annual award, established in 1964, is for exhibiting the finest leadership, academic integrity and citizenship qualities.

Kimberly Sanchez, of Cheyenne, was named the Rosemarie Martha Spitaleri Award recipient, while Vikram Singh, from Bangalore, India, received the Tobin Award, as the outstanding graduating man during a recent ceremony honoring all the nominees.

Kolf, who is a pharmacy major, with minors in Spanish and in the Honors Program, reflects on her educational experiences at UW.

“As graduation approaches, I can confidently say that I am a recipient of the highest quality education, and I cannot help but reflect and be thankful for all of the challenges, triumphs, lessons and learning I have been able to experience,” she says. “I take great pride in the fact that I was able to excel in my favorite medical chemistry classes.”

An instructor praises Kolf for being a well-rounded student.

“Meghan’s remarkable list of accomplishments demonstrates that her drive, leadership and dedication continued even while in the pharmacy program,” the instructor says. “She stands out in all areas -- academic achievement, vast service contributions, leadership, professionalism and just simply being a great person.”

Another nominator cites her willingness to give back to her community.

“Meghan embodies the ideal integrity and characteristics that are desired in all graduates of UW and the School of Pharmacy. She is a proud Wyoming student and will be an active alumnus,” the nominator writes. “Meghan is intelligent, professional and hardworking; and is truly a student to watch. She takes great pride and honor in serving this university, her fellow students and her goals.”
