Thirteen UNL students were recognized by the Center for Civic Engagement for their commitment to character as defined by their peers.

Students who attain the highest level of academic achievement are traditionally recognized by their academic dean through the “Dean’s List.” Similarly, “Franco’s List” recognizes students who were nominated and selected as outstanding agents for the “Show Your Red” campaign and its six building blocks. The list is named by students for Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan Franco.

“Show Your Red” is about celebrating the positive characteristics that are part of being a person of integrity, demonstrating the very best qualities of a Husker. Six character traits are branded as the building blocks of integrity: caring, citizenship, commitment, dependability, open-mindedness and respect. Faculty, staff and students can acknowledge students who consistently demonstrate a commitment to living a life of honesty and strong moral character by completing the nomination form on the website http://engage.unl.edu/show-your-red.

Selected students will be recognized at a reception on a semi-annual basis.

The following students are the first to be acknowledged, through Franco’s List, as students of integrity (with their majors listed): Stacey Cleveland, graduate student in Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education; LeRoy Ford, communication studies; Alex Goltz, psychology; Kassandra Jordan, broadcasting; Sarah Lewis, accounting; Jason Lucht, May 2012 graduate with degree in psychology and women’s and gender studies; Emily Martinez, theater; Mike Mumaugh, industrial engineering; Sean O’Brien, architecture; Dan Sahn, May 2012 graduate in history; Emily Schuckman, May 2012 graduate in nutrition and health sciences; Jacquelyn Stiles, hospitality, restaurant and tourism management; and Lisa Varney, nutrition and health sciences.
