How does your nominee define leading with purpose?
I nominated Zack because he is one of the most intentional people you will ever meet. He remembers details about people and is so thoughtful and considerate of others. Whether it is a friend, family member, colleague, client or complete stranger, Zack is kind and generous to everyone he meets. He loves Campbell Law and credits much of his success to mentors like Professor Melissa Essary, Assistant Dean Megan West Sherron and Dean Rich Leonard. In my mind, Zack is the definition of “leading with purpose” because he is always looking for ways to help out at the law school, including volunteering whenever he can.
