The University of Wyoming’s Campus Activities Center (CAC) recently recognized UW student groups and leaders for their efforts during its annual awards program.
Nine student groups and leaders received Recognized Student Organization (RSO) Awards of Excellence for their accomplishments from the past year. Because of COVID-19 concerns, the in-person celebration was canceled; however, a recognition event was streamed via Zoom and Facebook Live.
The 270-plus RSOs provide outlets for students to become involved, make friends and network. Members host hundreds of events on and off campus; attend conferences that enhance their professional development; and participate in service activities that impact the university and local community.
The award winners are:
-- Sara Axelson Outstanding RSO of the Year Award: The Sustainability Club for demonstrating commitment, character, citizenship, support of fellow student organizations, community service and visibility on campus.
-- Officer of the Year Award: Two leaders were recognized: Jacy Busboom, from Douglas, president of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE); and Julia Dickie, of Cheyenne, a Joint Engineering Council representative of AIChE.
-- Adviser of the Year Award: Joseph Holles, an associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, for his service as AIChE adviser.
-- Event of the Year Award: Two RSOs were recognized: AIChE for its Undergraduate Research Dinner and Bangladesh Students’ Association for its Bangladesh Night 2020.
-- Community Service Award: Alpha Kappa Psi for impacting the community in a substantial way and having a large number of members who participate in service.
-- Teamwork Award: Wyoming Motorsports for collaborating with other student organizations, departments on campus and community partners.
-- Poster of the Year Award: ACRES Student Farm for its Dance for the Plants poster.
