Joseph Essig presented leadership award.
JACKSONVILLE, IL – Joseph Essig, of Homer, IL, was named MacMurray student leader of the month for January. To be named a student leader, scholars must show academic excellence and involvement around campus.
A senior at MacMurray, Essig is involved in various campus activities, including the Campus Activities Board (CAB), and the MacMurray Student Association. He is a resident assistant and enjoys cycling. He also received a MacMurray scholarship.
“On top of being a second-year RA in Kendall Hall, he has taken an interest in other areas of student affairs,” said Dan Roberts, coordinator for residence life. “Last semester, Joe joined CAB and has been a big help for Cori Wagner, (MacMurray’s career services coordinator). His enthusiasm to help out when needed is refreshing,” Roberts said.
A 2008 graduate of Heritage High School in Broadlands, IL, Essig is the son of Dean and Sara Essig of Homer. He is pictured with Dean of Student Affairs Martin Sabolo.
