— by on October 19th, 2011

Washington and Lee University students Lauren Ashley Tipton and Kelton Buchanan will be recognized at the second Generals of the Month presentation of the academic year on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 12:10 p.m. in the Marketplace in Elrod Commons.

Lauren Ashley Tipton, a senior from Myrtle Beach, S.C., is majoring in neuroscience. She is the president of Active Minds; chair of Rockbridge Alliance for a Healthier Community; a member of the Student Recruitment Committee; and the chair of PR and Marketing for Chi Omega Sorority. She is a member of Beta Beta Beta Biology Honor Society and Psi Chi Psychology Honor Society.

Kelton Buchanan, a junior from Powder Springs, Ga., is majoring in sociology with a minor in women’s & gender studies. He is co-chair of General Activities Board (GAB); is coordinator for a  Volunteer Venture pre-orientation trip; and is a student assistant to the W&L president’s and Board of Trustees’ offices. He also participates in intercollegiate basketball.

Generals of the Month is coordinated by the Celebrating Student Success (CSS) initiative and sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs to inspire engaged citizenship at Washington and Lee University.  CSS seeks to recognize students who are not typically or sufficiently touted for the depth and breadth they add to our campus community.

Tipton and Buchanan were selected by the CSS Committee, which is composed of students, faculty and staff. Any member of the campus community can nominate a W&L student at any time with the online form at go.wlu.edu/css.

Future CSS presentations during the 2011-2012 academic year will be held during lunch in the Marketplace in the Elrod Commons on Nov. 16, Dec. 7, Jan. 25, Feb. 15, Mar. 21, Apr. 11 and May 9.
