W&L Seniors Jasmine Jimenez, Tyler Tokarczyk Are Generals of the Month

Washington and Lee University seniors Jasmine Jimenez and Tyler Tokarczyk will be recognized as the Generals of the Month for December at the presentation on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 12:30 p.m. in the Marketplace in Elrod Commons.

Jimenez, from Ingleside, Ill., is majoring in political science and is minoring in poverty and human capability studies. She has participated in Mock Trial and is a peer tutor, an admissions volunteer and a consultant with W&L’s Writing Center. She is also a member of the Washington and Lee Global Council, a student advisory group for study abroad, and she volunteers at the Lexington Office on Youth — an after school program.

In addition, Jimenez is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, the Pi Sigma Alpha national political honor society and the Phi Eta Sigma national honor society for first-years. She is also on W&L’s honor roll and dean’s list for academic achievement. She studied abroad her junior year at Worcester College, Oxford University.

Tokarczyk, from Buffalo, N.Y., is majoring in journalism and mass communications and is minoring in philosophy. He is president of Traveller safe ride program and served as publicity chair for that organization during his junior year.  He is a member of Sigma Chi fraternity and the W&L club hockey team.

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 celebrated for the depth and breadth they add to our campus community.

Jimenez and Tokarczyk 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 Jan. 25, Feb. 15, March 21, April 11 and May 9.
