Sugar Land resident Natalie Brown, a senior at Trinity University with a double major in English and communication and a minor in film studies, recently received Trinity University’s Student Leadership Award for her leadership skills, commitment, and enthusiasm. She is a candidate for graduation in May.
The award was presented by Trinity University President Dennis A. Ahlburg during the University’s 11th annual Student Leadership Awards ceremony on campus.
A strong writer and editor, Brown received the Coleen Grissom Continued Commitment & Dedication Award in honor of a longtime English professor at Trinity. Dr. Grissom is known for her engaging wit as well as her leadership in the University’s Division of Student Affairs. The award honors a student who has made a significant campus impact during the academic year.
Brown is editor of Trinity’s yearbook, The Mirage, where she displayed a commitment to Campus Publications before arriving on campus. She was hired for the yearbook staff in the summer before her first year, rising through the ranks to organizations editor, managing editor, and finally editor-in-chief of the yearbook.
Known for her creativity and dedication, Brown also is a gifted graphic designer, photographer, and master of desktop publishing. She designed the cover of Trinity’s student handbook twice. Whether a general staff member or the top editor, she diligently and enthusiastically applied her time and talent to makeThe Mirage a solid, engaging representation of the year at Trinity.
In addition, she is a member of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and is editor for the Trinity Review, a campus literary magazine.
She is the daughter of Cheryl and Greg Brown of Sugar Land. Her future plans involve a career in magazine journalism.
