2007/2008 Recipient is Shelby LaBuhn, Environmental Chemistry
"I'm certainly proud to be a part of Lake Superior State University. Our programs provide an excellent opportunity to gain competency in your major field through challenging and engaging courses stressing theory and application, and to gain preparation for employment, clinical practice or post baccalaureate education. However, a university education is more than that, it involves the transformation of individuals from students to scholars, from receivers of knowledge to creators of new knowledge, from professional prospects to professional colleagues. The university graduate carries away more than a just a paper diploma or certificate, you will carry a breadth and depth of learning that goes beyond a particular career choice. It is your development of a lifelong commitment to learning, of an appreciation and understanding of differing ideas and ideologies, and your continued development as an individual and professional, that empowers you as a citizen, prepares you for professional service, and opens your world to new possibilities. The Personal Approach to education at LSSU centers on personal contact and I encourage you to stop by my office, or that of any of the faculty members, to discuss your career interests in more detail. I look forward to meeting you."
