Eight Nichols seniors have been recognized by the publication Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities, which identifies students who have distinguished themselves on both the academic and extracurricular fronts.
The students (pictured in front of Conrad Hall with Nichols President Susan West Engelkemeyer) were nominated last fall by the College’s faculty and administrators. They include Briana Dellamura, Crystal Dennison, Ryan Flavin, Thomas Haggerty, Catherine Jaworski, Stephen Mack, Stefany Mendez, and Megan Woodruff.
Besides their academic accomplishments, all of the Who’s Who recipients have played an active role in the Nichols community. Delamura has been an orientation leader, teaching assistant, and varsity athlete. She also studied abroad in Rome during the second semester of her junior year.
Dennison, an English major, has served as a teaching assistant for the College’s first year Professional Development Seminar, which focuses on student career preparation. Next semester, she will fill the same role in two freshman Expository Writing courses. Dennison founded the Nichols College English Club and for the past three years has worked as a writing tutor in the school’s Academic Resource Center.
Flavin, the third member of his family to attend Nichols, will captain the men’s lacrosse team this spring. Haggerty, meanwhile, has been a member of the College’s Student Government Association as well as a resident assistant in the school’s dorms.
Jaworski, a double major in criminal justice and business management, has won the James L. Dunbar scholarship, named for the Nichols alumnus and founder of the nationally known security and armored car company that bears his name. Jaworski has also received admission to Delta Mu Delta, an international honor society in business.
Mack has spent his Nichols career in student affairs, as the treasurer for the Student Government Association, an officer on the Campus Activities Board, a leader for parent orientation, and a member of the College’s Student Retention and Recruitment Board. He also has been admitted to Delta Mu Delta.
For the past four years, Mendez has served as president of the Nichols Class of 2013 and is also a member of the Student Government Association and the Student Alumni Society. Mendez will study in Brazil for the spring term of her senior year.
Woodruff, who studied in London during her junior year, has distinguished herself as a champion player on the women’s tennis team, the secretary of the Student Government Association, and the treasurer of the Marketing Club. Among several internships she has successfully completed was a stint two summers ago at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
