Congratulations to Krystal Lanier, MDC North Campus, a FCSAA Student Government Division. Krystal was nominated by her advisor Ms. Jez Catambay-Lopez. Here’s what she had to say about Krystal:
“Krystal truly represents the dedication to excellence and passion for leadership that characterizes students at Miami Dade College’s North Campus. Through her constant efforts to develop opportunities for students to participate in the democratic process, Krystal has demonstrated herself as a pillar of educational success.
As a global citizen, Ms. Lanier zealously serves her community each weekend and encourages her peers to show genuine appreciation for their community. Acknowledged for her dedication to service, Ms. Lanier earned the Presidential Service Volunteer Service Silver Award for acquiring over 200 community service awards during her first year at Miami Dade College. Presently, focusing on civic engagement and promoting democracy, her aspirations to empower and educate the youth in her community truly set the standard of an exceptional leader. In her efforts towards voter registration, Ms. Lanier helped North Campus’ Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy and the Campus Elections Engagement Project surpass their goal of 1,700 newly registered individuals before the General Election deadline. Along with her personal goal to register individuals, Ms. Lanier strongly supported educating the student body during political and social issues workshops and collaborating with community partners who have the knowledge and experience to educate students of all ages. Ms. Lanier has also taken the opportunity to work for the Department of Elections as a poll worker for this past Primary and General Election. Her curiosity and appreciation for the entire process of registering, educating, and encouraging them to vote have truly driven her to go above and beyond, completing more than 100 hours of community service during the fall semester in support of helping others to exercise their right to vote and have a voice in their local, state and federal government.”
Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Ms. Catambay-Lopez for taking the time to nominate her!
