She was overwhelmingly described as a mother, mentor and friend who sets the stage for her students to shine in industry. When Dawn helped first form the organization, they had 6 members. Now, they have 37 members strong, which her nominators attributed to this advisor’s contagious energy and enthusiasm for student success.

Dawn contributes to every meeting, connects students with industry leaders, collaborates with other student organizations, and creates personal relationships with each student.

As her nominators wrote, “She has helped push our organization in the right direction… She deserves this award because nothing I or the girls will ever be enough to say thank you for all she has done for each of us. I could never have asked for a better advisor.”

Thank you for being such a strong advocate for your students, Dawn!
