SEPTEMBER - Student Leader of the Month

ALEXIS WILSON (she/they)

Communication Studies

Her nominator, Gavin Aitken, had this to say about her:

"Alexis is one of the most caring leaders that I know. She is continuously taking initiatives to advocate for the rights of others and looks for opportunities to increase diversity. They act to promote the education of important topics that affect the lives of her peers, while also taking personal steps to be self-aware. Overall, I cannot imagine a more influential student leader and advocate.
