UNI I Am A Hero - Ashley Minshall

By: Spencer Walrath on Tue, 11/08/2011 - 08:02

This week's UNI I Am A Hero is Ashley Minshall!

"I would like to nominate Ashley Minshall for the UNI am a Hero award.  She is currently the adviser of the Campus Activities Board and works with student leaders through the SIAC.  Since coming to the University of Northern Iowa, Ashley has been able to help student organizations plan events to provide students an environment to interact with one another.  Ashley has always been a person I can talk to and helps me better myself.  I believe the rest of the students that interact with Ashley would also call her an UNI hero." - Ryan Alfred

Congratulations Ashley on your nomination!

Don't forget to nominate your friends and co-workers to be recognized as a UNI Hero! Write a brief statement that details why they are a hero, including their name and email address, and email it to nisg@uni.edu.

Go Panthers!
