From her nomination letter (prepared by Jeff DeGrave, who drew from many faculty member comments), Corrin Turkowitch is " . . . that rare person who possesses exceptional abilities, tireless motivation, and kindred leadership—combined with an acute cultural sensitivity to the many social injustices that continue to permeate our globalized world." She "readily understands this 'bigger picture' of life and her roles in it—revealing her cultural awareness, empathy, and understanding for all people, locally and globally. Her initiative, leadership, fortitude, intelligence, and cordiality, as well as the responsible manner with which she carries herself truly set her apart from every other student."
Based on his experiences working with and mentoring Zach, Garry Running included this excerpt in his letter of recommendation, "I think the level-headed, self-directedness that makes [Zach] a great student and an even better role model for our younger majors comes from his struggle to find his way and overcome those academic challenges. He learned perseverance, diligence, commitment to his goals and developed a never-give-up attitude. Zach is the kind of student I love to work with as an academic advisor."
