Susan Shin Award

The award created to honor the memory of this outstanding young lady, will be given at SEAS Commencement to the junior (rising senior) that best exhibits the qualities by-which Susan Shin herself lived her life.

Candidate: Junior (rising senior) demonstrating Susan Chin’s qualities

Criteria:  The reoccurring awareness of others’ well-being is a rarity in today’s society, and one that should not only be encouraged, but rewarded.  With this award, we are able to immortalize the caring and compassion of a young woman whom was so tragically and prematurely taken from us.
