The Robert B. Stewart Award is presented to the graduate who most clearly exemplifies the traditions and values of Trine University through achievement in scholarship, leadership and citizenship. Each school nominates a graduating senior for this award. This year, Erin Lewis, an elementary education major from Farmland, Ind. was honored with the award.

Lewis said of being selected as the recipient of this award, “It is a daunting task being asked to speak on behalf of such an accomplished group.”

Lewis addressed the class of 2015 by including a quote from Nelson Mandela, saying that “‘There is no passion to be found playing small; in settling for a life less than the one you are capable of living.’ My hope is that as a class, we will be unsatisfied with a life that is less than what we are capable of living.”

Other nominees for the award were Allison Everetts, an exercise science major from Kokomo, Ind.; Matthew Smith, a computer science major from Kokomo; Hannah Vollmer, a biology major from Sherwood, Ohio; and Aaron Wolf, an accounting and finance double major from Huntington, Ind.
