Denesha Jones named student leader of month

Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University’s Office of Student Life and u-LEAD have announced that Denesha Jones, of St. Louis, has been selected as the February Student Leader of the Month.deneshaforweb

She was nominated by Randy Flowers, area coordinator and graduate assistant for student activities. He had the following to say in the nomination:

“Denesha has made continuous efforts to become familiar with every face at Baker and help make an impact on their lives if it is large or small. Denesha assisted many new residents in January when they returned to the halls. She would help carry their belongings in and make sure they became acclimated to the building. She has served in the role as a Serve 2 Succeed mentor and have helped many international students transition their lives to the U.S. She recently has taken on a project to change the views of Baker students on their outlook of diversity. She is forming an event which will visually show cultural differences through music, poetry and art. She saw this as an opportunity to diversify Baker, and I believe it should not go unnoticed. She has spent 20-plus hours researching not only what students want but also what would give the largest impact. This event is going to be spectacular on April 17 and it would not have occurred without her vision. Denesha is an ideal student leader and everyone should want her on their team.”

Nominations for the March Student Leader of the Month can be made online. Nominations are due by Friday, March 30.

Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
