The NEISA Student Leadership Award recognizes extraordinary leadership and achievement by an undergraduate whose efforts have made a significant contribution to the development, progress, and success of his or her club or team, conference, or the ICSA.
Jade Forsberg is the winner of the 2017 NEISA Student Leadership Award.
Her nomination from Hannah Lynn, NEISA undergraduate President reads: "Over the past year as NEISA VP, Jade has been instrumental in the promotion and growth of student-led and club programs throughout the conference. She provided a vital connection between the conference leadership and those who were having trouble getting their voices heard. Specifically, she contributed to the creation of the NEISA team development handbook as well as the club team symposium last December. These efforts to close the gap between the budding teams of NEISA and the top talent made Jade an important player on the NEISA executive committee. Before that, she was consistently a strong leader on the Middlebury team."
