10 Westmont Students Selected to Receive Service Awards

Ten outstanding Westmont College student leaders earned $1,000 toward school expenses as part of the 14th annual David K. Winter Servant Leadership Awards last Friday.

Each spring, the Westmont Student Life Office honors students who show exemplary leadership through service at Westmont and in the community.

This year the awards went to incoming seniors Paige Clenney of Huntington Beach; Elizabeth Cormode of Glendora; Cody Howen of Santa Barbara; Daniel Johnsen of Salinas and Rob Limkeman of Solon, Ohio. Incoming junior winners were Angela Brown of Menifee; Sarah Gowing of Littleton, Colo.; Kyle Jorgensen of Truckee; Tyler Moore of Murrieta and Carly Richardson of Belmont.

Winners were chosen for demonstrating integrity, collaboration skills, a passion for service and empathy. They revealed a servant’s heart in their roles on or off campus, made a significant impact on an organization, group or activity, and earned the respect and trust of their peers.

The student life office invites all faculty, staff and students to nominate deserving candidates, who are then vetted by a selection committee. The committee included Lyndsay Grimm, special assistant to the dean, Steve Contakes, assistant professor of chemistry, Robyn Bickerton, special projects coordinator for campus life, and Gabriella Pinheiro-Chavez, a 2013 recipient. The committee received more than 40 nominations this year.

Winter, Westmont president emeritus, attended the awards ceremony.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
