Two of the best-known students on the Georgetown College campus – Becky Hellman and Heather Norman – graduate Saturday with a recently-added accolade on their resume: 2011 Outstanding Student Leader.
Becky Hellman, a Psychology major/Sociology minor from Hodgenville, KY, may be best known as Homecoming Queen 2010, Panhellenic President and Sorority Woman of the Year 2011. Heather Norman, a Biology major/Chemistry minor from
Eddyville, KY, has been a high profile co-leader of the College’s Green Team since Spring 2010 and is the Senior Class President.
But, both young women are plenty involved in other ways and have touched the lives of many.
Becky, a Dean’s List student, found time to be a Resident Advisor and Resident Director as well as serve Phi Mu Sisterhood Chair. Laura Aispuro, Director of Residence Life, said, “Becky leads by truly investing in others and simply doing what she believes is right. She does not seek credit or recognition. She supports other students out of genuine care for their well-being thereby making her an exceptional leader”
Heather has served on the Campus Ministries Leadership Team and the GC Chapel Team. She’s also influenced younger students as a Presidential Mentorship Program Leader and a New Student Orientation Leader or Coordinator the past three years. Angela Taylor, Director of Greek Life & Judicial Affairs, said, “Heather is an extremely mature and disciplined student. Other students look to Heather as a role model as she leads with compassion, determination, and care.”
Plans for after graduation are a bit unclear for both, but with “Outstanding Student Leader” on the resume the future is bright.
Becky loves what she’s learned in the Human Relations department at Lexington’s Thomas & King and will continue this internship into the summer; she’s also looking at Phi Mu Fraternity national. Heather is waiting to hear from a couple of Ph.D programs that bypass the Masters in Cellular and Molecular Biology.
