Recipients of the Leaders of Distinction and Level 1 Awards were recognized Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the Lee H. McCaskey Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.

Each year, since the development of the Leaders of Distinction award in 2009, 10-15 students have been awarded. This year, 22 students were honored.

Each recipient received a plaque presented at a banquet Wednesday. 

Director of CSIL Jamar Banks and Associate Director Jim Street presented the awards to the recipients.

“We want to honor the students who make a difference,” Banks said. ” We also want to thank the students for their leadership, for their contribution, their hard work, as well as their dedication.”

Street said that without these types of students, Appalachian “would not run the way it does.”

In addition to the 22 students who received the Leadership of Distinction award, 49 students received the Leadership Level 1 award, and 15 others received the Service Level 1 award.

“Students who show passion for what they do, are recognized today,” said Street. “Those who put in the time, serve our community, and act as leaders here on campus.”

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
