Laurie A. Nau Named ‘Student of the Month’ by SGA


Laurie A. NauLaurie A. Nau, a forest technology major from Jersey Shore, is the Student Government Association’s latest Student of the Month at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Nau participates in a number of Forestry Club activities, has repeatedly donated her time to American Red Cross Bloodmobiles at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center, volunteers at Penn College Open Houses, gives tours to prospective students and their families, and is in charge of the forestry bulletin boards in the School of Natural Resources Management.

“Succinctly put, Laurie makes my job easier,” her faculty nominator said. “She is not only an excellent student … but she is very conscientious and dedicated to learning. She is really an amazing person when you consider how she balances her family life with that of her student life. I would be remiss not to say that she is very involved in her community, as well.”

The professor also has been impressed with Nau’s desire to learn more about the environment, saying she has gone well beyond the forestry education she is acquiring at Penn College.

“She is so supportive of her classmates,” the nominator added. “She’s almost like a ‘Mini Me’ when students come to her for additional clarification. I think she would make a great teacher!”

The Student of the Month is selected seven times each academic year based on commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement. Nominations from faculty/staff and other students are strongly encouraged.
