38th annual Student Leadership & Honors Awards 2015-2016

Undeniable Leaders – Center for Student Involvement

April 13th, 2016 – KSC STUDENT BALLROOM

FLASHanthropy and its members received a number of awards last night at the Center for Student Involvement’s 38th annual Student Leadership & Honors Awards ceremony. Congrats to another great year and our terrific students!

Theresa Medrano

This award was created in memory of Cindy Bowlby, a dedicated student leader at Kent. In the spirit of her ideals, this award is presented to a returning (non-graduating) student leader who has demonstrated excellence in his or her scholarship, leadership, and integrity.

Angela Ehrich

This award is given to no more than nine student leaders each year. Members of organizations may be nominated by their peers or advisers. The committee will place a strong emphasis on students who have contributed significantly to the leadership of their organization and whose campus participation has been outstanding.


This award is given to three registered student organizations for outstanding contributions to its members and the student body as a whole. The recipient will be an organization whose members have demonstrated a strong ability to promote its ideals, have used innovative methods in reaching goals, and whose members have made significant contributions to Kent State University.
