Marielena Moreno, a junior child, youth and family studies and sociology major from Lincoln, has been honored with a Student Luminary award to recognize her exceptional leadership and commitment to improving the campus and community.

Moreno was honored for her commitment to inclusion and ability to positively contribute to the campus community through peer leadership roles in TRIO, the William H. Thompson program, and the Explore Center. Additionally, she serves as a Catechist teacher for a local church.

“She quickly stood out to me as a leader who helps provide a positive campus environment,” said Selma De Anda, nominator. “As a WHT mentor she served as a great leader and through her mentorship and event planning made Huskers in the program feel cared for and valued.”

Moreno was one of ten university students announced as Student Luminary award recipients during a reception at Howard L. Hawks Hall April 1. Each student was nominated by a faculty or staff member on campus and received $1,000.
