Cary’s President’s Medal Citation:
Your nominators, Caroline, note that you plan to pursue a career in public health, but your nomination shows us you have an eye on global health as well – a gift we all know is greatly needed in today’s world. As an international studies major who has also completed a pre-med curriculum with exemplary academic performance, you’ve pursued your passion from Argentina to Bellevue Hospital in New York. Fellow students note your skillful tutoring in chemistry here on campus, and in the local community you’ve been a volunteer and asset for the Licking County Humane Society and Habitat for Humanity. A remarkable DCA leader, you shepherded the campus chapter of Habitat and doubled Denison’s hands-on participation in home building and service, including making connections to other Habitat programs in need of our help in South Carolina. You helped spearhead an effort to bring together Denison students who supported Planned Parenthood, serving ultimately as president of Denisonians for Planned Parenthood. Your global spirit and local engagement are at the heart of our campus vision of a liberal arts education.
