History Major Sarah Fisher Wins a Student Government Association Student Leadership Award
History major Sarah Fisher, who is also double majoring in Political Science and has a minor in Sociology, was awarded a Student Leadership Award at the Student Government Association annual awards dinner Monday April 20.
Sarah was nominated and won the award primarily for her successful work as a Peer Mentor in the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) program sponsored by the Student Success Center at UAH. As a PASS tutor for 5 semesters, Sarah has attended the survey courses of 4 different history professors and organized thrice weekly break-out sessions with enrolled students to review course concepts and develop study skills. Dr. Diana Bell, director of the Student Success Center, has chosen Sarah to help coordinate and supervise PASS mentors in Academic Year 2009-2010.
Sarah is also about to start a co-op internship with the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) here in Huntsville. She hopes to work for the government after her graduation in Spring 2010.
