Kelsey Maguire, a sophomore nursing student in the Gordon E. Inman College of Health Sciences & Nursing, has been selected as the recipient of the 2012 Belmont University Second Year Award. The award recognizes an outstanding student who demonstrates values of leadership, service, scholarship and faith through actions and relationships which benefit Belmont and the larger community.
Kelsey is founding president of Belmont Nurse’s Christian Fellowship where she leads a weekly support group. She is also a Towering Traditions leader, an Engaged Scholar, member of the Student Nurse’s Association and lab assistant for the School of Nursing. She is an active member of Crosspoint Church and serves as assistant coach and choreographer for the Woodland Middle School JV Dance Team.
Kelsey was nominated for the award by Dr. Beth Hallmark and professor Dede Kuhn. Dr. Hallmark said, “Kelsey makes intentional choices to be honorable and upright; yet she loves others with a grace that is contagious. I have seen her develop into a maturing young lady who is thinking about the world, Belmont and her own life, and how her actions and beliefs affect all of these things.”
The award will be presented at the university awards convocation on April 18.
