LLS Student of the Year Candidate
Congratulations to our alumni Traci Duff, Class of 2012, for a successful fundraising campaign. She raised over $6,000 to benefit leukemia and lymphoma research.
At the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student of the Year Gala which was held March 4th, Traci Duff received one of the three Citizen Awards. These three awards were: Mission Integration Award, Leadership Award, and Community Involvement Award. Overall, nominees were judged on creativity, passion, reach and leadership. Traci received the Leadership Award.
For the Leadership award the candidates needed to show a commitment to utilizing their leadership skills as well as encouraging and cultivating the team throughout the campaign. Specific examples showing how the candidate demonstrated excellent or consistent leadership was required. The candidate also had to effectively adapt to challenges during the campaign and continue to lead the team members through change. The candidate also had to exhibit leadership in other ways outside of the campaign such as in other groups she is involved with.
