“The Orsia F. Young Leadership Award is conferred on one graduating student from each academic school who has performed in an outstanding manner as a leader in the university community, initiated action, motivated others to do so, and has been an agent for positive change in the university.”
This year, we are happy to announce that our Psych major Tranel Robinson has received the Orsia F. Young Leadership award.
During the past four years, Tranel has been a highly engaged member of our campus community, and has grown into a confident and effective leader. In terms of formal leadership roles, Tranel has been a member of the SGA Junior Class Council, Vice President of the Sovereign Stangs Step Team, and a Mentor for Mustang Mentors. In addition, she has served as a Freshman Orientation Leader, the Student Coordinator for Clubs and Organizations, and President of Stevenson’s Chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success. In addition to these leadership roles, Tranel is a Technology Supervisor here at Stevenson, where she is responsible for supervising a staff of 14 student employees. She has received multiple honors for her outstanding work, including Student of the Month by the National Resident Hall Honorary, Student Employee of the Month (twice), and recognition as a National Engaged Leader by the National Society of Leadership and Success.
In each of these roles, Tranel has shined as a leader, particularly in her ability to initiate action, motivate others to do so, and be an agent for positive change. Her consistent leadership involvement over the past four years and the diverse experiences she has highlights her ability to be a true and effective leader in multiple contexts. Congratulations Tranel! You deserve this award!
