Student Leader: Jon Przybyla

Serving as a Student Leader meant that I could take a step towards where I wanted to be. I was motivated by the idea of one day being a leader in my community. By becoming a student leader I was able to make that first step. It gave me an opportunity to not only hone in my basic skills through tutoring, like calculus and physics, but to gain leadership skills like public speaking and group communication."

What did serving as a Student Leader mean to you? What motivated you to participate?
Serving as a Student Leader meant that I could take a step towards where I wanted to be. I was motivated by the idea of one day being a leader in my community. By becoming a student leader I was able to make that first step. It gave me an opportunity to not only hone in my basic skills through tutoring, like calculus and physics, but to gain leadership skills like public speaking and group communication.

A memory that remains with me from my Student Leader days is:
I remember having a group my first year that started off very poorly. They had one of the four drop out a couple weeks in and their grades looked like they were going to be a rough group all semester. By the end of the semester they won an award for their turbine design. They became the weekly highest grade for assignments and one is a student leader today. it made me realize that people can learn at different speeds and surprise you at any moment.

Any leaders you'd like to shout-out to?
Jon Przybyla was my student leader. Dan Meira got me interested. Met great people like Brittany Packard, Nick Marchesiello, Jake Caldwell, Damian, everyone from my year and so much more
