Kirk selected as Lifetime Pioneer
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Savion Kirk, a fall 2013 graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, has been selected as a Lifetime Pioneer. The designation was made by the UW-Platteville Alumni Association, which annually recognizes outstanding graduates by awarding them life membership in the association, currently a $400 value.
The award is based on a variety of criteria, including campus activities, leadership, community involvement, professional development and employment, academic excellence, and anticipated future involvement in the Alumni Association.
Kirk, a Freeport, Ill., native, earned a bachelor’s degree in middle level education.
As a Student Ambassador and student staff member in the Prospective Student Services office, Kirk has been recruiting students to attend UW-Platteville since 2010. He has given tours, presented to student and parents about the campus and served as a peer advisor, among other responsibilities.
Kirk was the recipient of the Dean Linden award last spring, an award given to one student each year for his or her leadership on campus. “Savion’s involvement on campus spans for pages,” said Kim Schmelz, director of Alumni Services. “It’s absolutely amazing. He truly embodies UW-Platteville and the selection committee had no doubt that he would continue to stay involved and active on campus.”
