Outstanding Student Leadership Award

The 2017-2018 CANR Outstanding Leadership Award is open for nominations from each department. Seniors in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources graduating Fall 2017 or Spring or Summer 2018 are eligible for the award.  

CANR faculty, academic advisers or club advisers may submit nominations. Undergraduate students may not nominate each other. 

Nominees for this award have shown service and leadership in College, Department/School and University activities. By tradition, the winner of this award is asked to represent the graduating seniors as class speaker at the CANR commencement ceremony. 

Please complete the form, including a statement in support of the nomination of your candidate. The form may be reproduced if you wish to nominate more than one student. Sign completed form(s) and return to Dorcia Chaison, room 121, Justin S. Morrill Agriculture Hall. You may also fax to 355-8364 or e-mail chaison@msu.edu as a PDF by Friday, February 9 at or before NOON. 

Students nominated for the award will be notified on Friday, February 9, 2018 after 2:00 PM via email. Once notified candidates are provided instructions for submission of additional required materials. 

The deadline for nominated students to submit their resume, supplemental information and sign up for an interview slot is Monday, March 12, 2018 by 5:00 pm. This will insure that the interview committee will have time to review the materials before the interviews start on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.
