SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- The Association of Student Advancement Programs (ASAP) has chosen Tiffany Jastorff as its 2003 Outstanding Student Leader for the organization's District 5.

The award was announced at the ASAP district conference held April 9-11 at Ohio University. Nominees included peers from Western Michigan University, Ohio University, Kansas University, University of Illinois and Ohio State University. Each member school is invited to nominate one student leader for the award. There are more than 1,500 ASAP District 5 members at 60 universities in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio.

Jastorff, a junior from Pierre, South Dakota, is a psychology major who plans to attend graduate school and complete a doctorate in clinical psychology. She has been active on the LSSU campus since her freshman year, including working two years as resident assistant in the campus housing system, work as a peer tutor and student manager in the Learning Center, volunteering with Student Alumni Involved for Lake State (SAILS) and with Anchor House. She has been a member of the Great Lake State Week and Weekend committee, organized by SAILS, since coming to LSSU. She chaired the ASAP District 5 conference held last spring at LSSU.

"I believe in what SAILS represents and in what we do for Lake Superior State University," said Jastorff. "And I believe in my friends and peers who work so hard as members of SAILS. This honor may have my name on it, but it really belongs to everyone who is a part of Student Alumni Involved for Lake State."

Jastorff has made the dean's list in each of her six semesters (3.94 cumulative GPA) and is a member of the Alpha Chi National Scholarship Honor Society. She is eligible for the ASAP International Student Leader Award that will be announced at the ASAP Assembly this August in Nashville. –LSSU-
