Congratulations to Honors Tutorial College - School of Music piano student, Ami Scherson, who was awarded as Ohio University's "Outstanding Senior Leader" at this week's Leadership Gala! Ami serves on the Executive Board of the International Student Union ISU as Vice-President, and her ISU team also received the "Outstanding Programming - Fall 2018" award for the International Dinner.

Ami shares: "Though I am more than excited to have had the honor to receive these awards, the truth is that I will continue this work even without recognition. My community, arts accessibility, and social justice are areas that I am extremely passionate about. I want to continue this wherever I go, but am so thankful that Athens and the OU community has taught me how to create positive change with the assets around me. I am thankful for my mentors, my incredibly patient and loving friends, and for the experiences I am blessed to have had."

Thank you, Ami, for being an inspiration to us all!
