Angela Huebert recognized with Women of Courage, Character and Commitment Award
30 Mar 2023 By Kelcey Buck
Angela Huebert, a first-year student in the Clinical Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) program, was one of five students and 26 total honorees recognized with a 2023 Women of Courage, Character and Commitment Award by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Women’s Center.
The annual award recognizes women from the campus and Lincoln communities who have made positive impacts through professional, personal, mentoring or peer relationships.
“I was so surprised,” Huebert said. “It was nice that someone saw those characteristics in me and wanted to share that.”
She was nominated for the award by Morgan Green McConnell, the senior residence director (RD) at Massengale Residential Center where Huebert is the assistant RD.
“Angela has been a positive light to the students she works with, the department she works for and the cohort of students she is part of,” Green McConnell said in her nomination. “As a first-year grad student in the audiology program and in her first year as a G.A., she inspires those around her with her courage to persevere through all the challenges that come with those new changes!”
Huebert, who also completed her bachelor’s degree at Nebraska, began working in residence life on campus as a junior.
“I was a residence assistant in Sandoz my junior year and then Schramm and Harper my senior year, so it made sense to continue as an ARD and keep building on the skills I learned as an RA,” Huebert said.
While balancing the time commitments of her audiology program with those of being an ARD can be challenging, Huebert sees the benefit of doing both.
“As an introvert, getting out of my comfort zone and interacting with students has been a skill that’s transferred really well to the work I do with patients in the Au.D. program.”
In her nomination, Green McConnell also recognized Huebert’s interactions with others as one of her strengths.
“She is a woman of character for the authentic way she shows up each day,” Green McConnell said. “She is present with the students she works with, often spending time connecting with them and developing relationships. She is committed to the field of audiology and speaks about it with such passion. I am honored to work alongside her and am inspired by her work ethic.”
The 2023 honorees were recognized during the Women’s History Month Celebration on March 10. A full list of this year’s award winners is available here.
