|2007 Student Awards|
And the winner is ...
School of Public Health graduates were honored at their banquet on May 4 at the Hilton Fort Worth. Over 50 awards were given at this year’s banquet… two of them for the first time.
One of the new awards is the Fernando Trevino, PhD, MPH, Leadership Award. It was presented to Joseph Rodriguez for professionalism, leadership, integrity and fostering a positive public health image. As president of the Public Health Student Associatio, Joseph was instrumental in helping develop a three-year course matrix that made it easier for students to plan their coursework. He also took a leadership role during the CEPH accreditation when the student representatives met with the site team. Joseph was selected for this award by Dr. Fernando Trevino, former dean of the School of Public Health.
The second new award – The Phoenick's Award – recognized Merly Mathew for overcoming adversity. She completed her master’s degree despite losing her mother to cancer. The award was presented by Diane Wynn, director of SPH student and academic services, and her son Nick, for whom the award is named. The award was created by Diane in honor of her first year as a cancer survivor.
