Congratulations to Hector Dominguez, a junior Psychology major, and Erin Mitchell, a Doctor of Occupational Therapy student, students of the month for September!
We had a busy September, but let’s not forget that in the midst of the bustle our faculty nominated two exemplary students for Student of the Month! This year faculty are electing an undergraduate and a graduate. Congrats to Hector and Erin!
Undergraduate Student of the Month
The CUW faculty have selected Hector Dominguez as the September Undergraduate Student of the Month. Hector is a junior Psychology major with a Human Biology minor. He is an engaged, supportive, and positive student, as well as a faith-centered servant leader. He excels both academically and in service, embodying strong Christian values in his classes and community interactions. For example, as a Peer Leader in the General Psychology course, Hector displayed commitment and willingness to go above and beyond what was required of him to create a supportive and engaging learning environment for the students in the course. Additionally, Hector is the President of the Psychology Club, showcasing his eagerness to learn and setting an outstanding example for his peers. As a servant leader, he shows Christ-like love through helping each of his peers feel heard, appreciated, and cared for.
Nominated by Dr. Vittoria Sipone.
Graduate Student of the Month
The CUW faculty have selected Erin Mitchell as the September Graduate Student of the Month. Erin is in the Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program and consistently goes above and beyond! She works in the OT field as a COTA and simultaneously has been completing coursework. OTD students must plan and execute a 14-week capstone experience in the community. Her capstone site was changed unexpectedly halfway through the planning course. Erin kept a calm, professional, enthusiastic demeanor during this whole process and completed the vigorous written components in a very condensed timeframe. She produced high quality work that is going to greatly impact the site where she will serve. Erin always finds opportunity amid challenge. She is deeply committed not just to her own success as a student, but also to helping others succeed through her work and service.
