After two years of virtual awards, hundreds of Belmont students, staff and faculty gathered again in person for the 2022 Belmont Student Leadership Awards (BSLA). This year’s event, themed “Lights Up for Leadership,” celebrated the service, leadership and achievement of members of the campus community.
Adding their own special touch to the evening, this year’s student-led event highlighted the work of seniors Anthony “Dj Panda” Vannarath on music, Kate Phillips on set design, Allie Devolve, who created the hand-drawn event theme design, and a group of very talented student script writers, producers and hosts. BOLD Leaders, SGA Senators and Presidential and Hearst Scholars served as greeters and helped set up and break down the event.
While this inclusive and collaborative event was hosted by the entire Division of Student Life, in true Belmont form, the following Belmont departments each contributed to making the event wildly successful: Event Services, Facilities Maintenance: Custodial Services and Landscaping, Belmont Copy Center, University Ministries, Office of Career and Professional Development, O’More College of Architecture and Design, Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business, Office of Service Learning, The Massey College of Business and the Office of the President.
Belmont encourages every student to become a leader. Whether through a student organization, Greek life, BOLD, the Student Government Association, Residence Life, in a course, or during a WELL-Core experience, every Belmont student has access to leadership development opportunities. The BSLAs are just one way Student Life recognizes the dedication, skills and commitment of a variety of Belmont leaders from across campus.
