Mike White and Rosemary Hambright First Students Recognized by Celebrating Student Success

Mike White ’10 and Rosemary Hambright ’11 were recognized at the first Celebrating Student Success (CSS) monthly reception on Wednesday, Sept. 23, in the Elrod Commons Living Room.

White, a senior from Richmond, Va., is majoring in fine arts photography and print journalism, as well as completing the Shepherd Program. He has helped both the Model United Nations and Student Environmental Action League (SEAL) to grow in membership and prominence. White has served three years as a Volunteer Venture coordinator and is currently the secretary for Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.

Hambright, a junior from Beaumont, Texas, is majoring in environmental studies and English, and has already completed a minor in studio art. She is the vice president of membership for Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, is art editor for the Muse, and also in charge of public relations for SEAL. Hambright has served three years on Fancy Dress committees and two years on the First-Year Orientation Committee after being a member of the First-Year Leadership Council.

CSS is an initiative sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs to create ongoing dialogue about the positive accomplishments of individuals and organizations at Washington and Lee University, especially students who are not typically recognized for the depth and breadth they add to our campus community.

White and Hambright were selected by the CSS committee, which reviewed several nominations. The CSS committee is composed of students, faculty and staff. Any campus community member can nominate any Washington and Lee University student by filling out the online form on the CSS website at http://www.wlu.edu/x9924.xml. Nominations are always accepted and encouraged.

Future CSS receptions will occur from 2-4 p.m. in the Elrod Commons Living Room on Oct. 21, Nov. 18, Dec. 9, Jan. 27, Feb. 17, Mar. 17, Apr. 7 and May 5.
