Outstanding Student of the Year for Outstanding Academic and Co-Curricular Contributions:
Described as a leader who has had a major impact on students, Cheyenne King is being recognized for her academic excellence, deep commitment to the campus community, and social justice activism.
As a Community Advocate in the HSU Residence Halls, she is committed to student residents. She is also the External Affairs representative for Associated Students, sits on the Social Justice and Equity Council and Student Advocacy Council, and works for the Oh SNAP! food pantry, where she networks with groups on campus to promote zero waste.
