Receiving the 2012 Thomas F. Frist Student Service Award
It was an honor to have been chosen for the 2012 Thomas F. Frist Student Service Award at the University of Mississippi. PPL graduate Kaylen Addison snapped this great photo of the moment when I was up at the podium to receive the award.
The next pic is the plaque, featuring the university’s colors.
I also got a photo with then-Chancellor Dan Jones, who has been highly encouraging and supportive. In fact, he wrote one of the endorsements for Uniting Mississippi.
The morning of the event, I was also able to get a photo with then-Chancellor Dan Jones, who had on the serious bling-bling of Commencement ceremonies.
Finally, a university photographer caught a really happy moment, when I was walking up to the podium. The University of Mississippi has been a great place. Sometimes institutions can do a lot to make you feel appreciated, though that doesn’t seem to be the norm. I feel pretty lucky.
