Congrats to Jeremia “Mia” Johnson for earning the Outstanding Fulton Student Organization Undergraduate Emerging Leader 2017-2018 Student Organization Awards & Recognition (SOAR) award! They were recognized at the SOAR ceremony on April 25, 2018 for their accomplishments.
As one of the team members shared, “I met Jeremia (Mia) the first week of her freshman year. I have had the great privilege of serving as her Peer Mentor for 2 years, in addition to serving with her as a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB). As a freshman, Mia immediately involved herself in EWB and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). Her proactive decisions led her to become a prominent member of EWB’s Irrigation Project with the Shonto Chapter of the Navajo Nation. As a Sophomore, she was elected as EWB’s Social Media Chair, where she added responsibilities and resources to enhance the position and the organization as a whole. In this role, Mia acted as students’ first line of contact with EWB. She was instrumental in guiding new members to join EWB and distributing news and event information. Now as a rising Junior, Mia has been elected to the role of EWB Treasurer. This position is vital to the operations of the organization and progress of our projects. Indirectly, Mia’s work in this role will empower members to find solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. During the time that I have known her, Mia has exhibited a passion for her ASU community, rapid leadership development, and an adaptability that is vital in the engineering profession today.”
As one of the team members shared, “The Fulton Schools provide a customizable, cross-functional education that makes our engineers professionally competitive. As a Computer Science student, everything that Mia does for EWB is cross-functional.”
This award earned the organization $300 in funding that will go toward organization needs.
