UBMS Weekly Update

February 19, 2016

2015-2016 THEME: "HAVE THE COURAGE TO SUCCEED!"

This Week's "UB Special" Award!

"UB Special" awards are given to one student each week. Staff select a special student who has demonstrated good qualities of leadership, courage, perseverance, ambition, friendship, or achievement.

This week's "UB Special" award recipient is ELIZABETH "ELLE" KAHLOW!


Elle is an extremely dependable student who is often one of the first, if not the THE first, or even the ONLY student to reply to messages sent from the UBMS office. Her attendance is near perfect at required events this academic year and she often participates in the non-required events we suggest or offer. Her first volunteer experience that gave UBMS an opportunity to shine in the community was at the Galloway House Haunted Village Kids Day last October - and she wasn't even officially in UBMS at the time! We want to thank Tori for recommending Elle to the program - obviously she knew that Elle would be a GREAT fit to our UBMS family and she was right! We are glad you're here Elle and hope that others will join us in congratulating you for being the recipient of this week's UB Special Award!
