Isabel Chasney, Nick Hausman win Snyder Prize; Scott Miller voted Faculty Member of the Year

On one of the most festive occasions of the year, Heidelberg honored students, faculty and staff members for their achievements inside and outside the classroom at the annual Student Awards Celebration on Friday.

In his remarks, President Rob Huntington expressed sincere gratitude “to all the students who worked so hard to get here.”

“You contribute to the vibrancy of everything Heidelberg is and aspires to be,” he said.

Isabel Chasney and Nicholas Hausman are the recipients of the Daniel J. and W.J.K Snyder Prize, awarded to the top graduating seniors who faculty judged to have excelled during their four years at Heidelberg in leadership based on character and scholarship. Carson Pottenger is this year’s recipient of the Burghalter Memorial Award, given to a student who best exemplifies the spirit of the Good Samaritan. Carson was recognized for his work with the local Habitat for Humanity and Heidelberg’s Blitz Build.

Isabel was chosen to give the student remarks at the celebration. She titled her remarks “Zoomsday.” In her speech, she reflected on the many ups and downs the Class of ’23 experienced through their years at Heidelberg, the resilience they demonstrated and the memories made along the way.
