For the Hub City Times
OSHKOSH — Thirty-five University of Wisconsin Oshkosh seniors earned recognition as recipients of the 2021 Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence. Among them was Marshfield graduate, Selena Yang.
Award criteria includes: academic performance, university-related service, and community involvement.
“These Titans have applied themselves and their educations in remarkable ways throughout the course of their UWO journeys. Of course, that includes navigating the historic global pandemic this past year, which added incredible challenges and pressures on top of the everyday rigors of a UWO education,” Chancellor Andy Leavitt said. “We know these students, as alumni, will make a difference in people’s lives and will continue to embody what this institution stands for in their endeavors to come.”
Yang, a human services leadership major from Marshfield, is already applying the theories she learns in the classroom to her work as a lead teacher at the Boys and Girls Club. She also works as the manager on duty within UWO’s Gruenhagen Conference Center. She has also been active in the Titan Advantage Program and UWO’s International Student Association.
Yang will graduate this May.
