Jazlynn Hall, of Rawlins, 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.

During her college career, Hall, who will graduate with dual degrees in geography and anthropology, with a minor in the Honors Program, says her goal was to contribute to UW wherever she could.

“I have taken nearly every opportunity available to me to contribute to the University of Wyoming through scholarship, leadership and volunteering, and have had a fantastic time doing so,” she says. “I have been actively engaged with the campus and city community while holding leadership positions for my fellow students.”

An instructor praises Hall for pushing herself to succeed.

“If Jazlynn feels that she is not meeting expectations, then she does what it takes to meet and then exceed those expectations. I can say, without hesitation, that she is an exceptional student scholar -- really, the best of the best,” the nominator writes. “Ms. Hall was a terrific lab assistant and researcher because she is detail-oriented, observant and conscientious, all qualities that will equip her well in her future career.”

Another nominator says, “Jazlynn is a very mature individual and highly driven to succeed. She is highly motivated, enthusiastic, dedicated, organized and a conscientious researcher who has taken on a great challenge in her last year at UW.”
