Laura is a strong student leader in the University of Washington community and continues to impress all of those around her on a regular basis. When it comes to having a role model, there’s no one better than Laura. She shows a great deal of values, enthusiasm, and passion for all that she does. She’s extremely dedicated to the University of Washington and all of the students that she represents as part of her role. This year Laura has led her peers and her organization to new levels of success that couldn’t be done without persistence and extraordinary leadership skills. I can think of no one more deserving of being recognized than her.
