“He has shown that he is a role model for all students through volunteer work with SMAC, Student Leadership Boot Camp, his work in the Writing Center and much, much more,” his nominator wrote. “He is always the first person to take on club projects and help out wherever needed. Caleb always puts the needs of others before his own – whether they be staff, students or strangers.”

Readily acknowledged as beneficial to others, Schirmer’s positive attitude and willingness to work have also paid off in his personal growth.

“Through his increased involvement on campus, he has become more confident, open to change and motivated,” the nominator continued. “He is well-liked by everyone he meets … and brings a bright personality and charm to Penn College. He truly embodies what a student leader – and a Student of the Month – should be.”

SGA recognition is bestowed numerous times each academic year based on students’ commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement.
