IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY
AMES — Derek Robison of Richland has been named a “Student Sensation” for 2013, by the Iowa State University College of Human Sciences.
Robison, a senior majoring in elementary education, values service to others above all else. He tries to live out his fraternity’s motto, “Human Service,” by giving more than 200, and counting, hours of service to his community.
When he saw a need for a student organization on campus, he took the initiative and created the Iowa State University Education Association – an organization for all future teachers. Under Robison’s leadership as founding president, the ISUEA became the largest Iowa State Education Association student chapter in the state, with more than 200 registered members.
The honor of Student Sensation is bestowed annually to an elite group of undergraduate students who demonstrate excellence in: scholarship, leadership, professional practice, community service, university service, activism, overcoming obstacles or problem-solving.
Robison is among 12 students selected for the honor in 2013.
Sensations are selected by Iowa State’s Human Sciences Student Council through a competitive process and are recognized by the dean’s office. Those selected are held up as role models for others to emulate.
