WA Alpha junior Alex Pan received the Frank J. Ruck Leadership Award at the Carlson Leadership Academy in Los Angeles.
Pan was recruited informally in fall of 2017, later serving alongside the 2019 Executive Board as the Balanced Man Scholarship Chair; though, his impact at Washington State and the city Pullman is sewn deep into the fabric of his being – a native to the town.
Through his work serving Washington State as the ASWSU director of community affairs, several other student organizations, groups, and businesses within Pullman have been direct benefactors of his diligent efforts.
“Pan embodies the teachings of our chapter in his personal and professional life. I honestly don’t know how he does it. He inspires me to be better, and I know I’m not alone,” Chapter President Jared Holstad said.
The Ruck Leadership Award is presented each year at Carlson to a chapter or individual who shows outstanding campus or community leadership and makes significant positive changes on their campus and community.
WA Alpha last won this award in 2019 with Pan’s mentor Keegan Otter, and before that in 2013 for the chapter at large.
