This year’s Butler Community College Business Student Leader Award recipient is Sophia Dawson, who was nominated by Marketing Department Chair Jared McGinley.

Sophia is very involved at Butler. In her two years on campus, she has been a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society, the Hispanic American Leadership Organization, Collegiate DECA, Grizzly Ambassadors, Phi Beta Lambda, and serves as Vice President of the Student Government Association. In addition, she has served in the role of Resident Assistant in the Butler dorms.

Outside of Butler she has served as an Economic Development intern through the Barber County Commissioners, and as a member of the Medicine Lodge P.E.O. Sisterhood Chapter, an organization committed to helping women pursue higher education.

After Butler, Sophia, who is a native of Medicine Lodge, will travel to Boston to serve in a Residence Life internship at the Berklee College of Music, then attend Emporia State University in the fall to pursue a degree in Human Resources.

The Accreditation Council for Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) developed the Business Student Leadership Award to recognize excellence in business student leadership. All faculty within the Business Programs at Butler may nominate students they feel exemplify business leadership. Butler faculty review the applications and pick the recipient, who is honored with their name being placed on a perpetual plaque that hangs on campus. They also receive their own award.
