Senior Jensy Joseph received the Student Activities Award and was nominated by Ms. Katie Odell.

This semester senior Jensy Joseph was nominated for the Principal’s Recognition Award for her dedication to community service. Being a Dance Marathon executive and Niles West WHO Club member, Joseph was nominated by Mrs. Karissa Moy, Mr. Andrew Johnson, and also by student activities director, Ms. Katie Odell.

“I believe they nominated me for the award because of the excitement I bring to the meetings and the dedication I have to the clubs,” Joseph said.

Most people know Joseph as a bubbly and energetic person. It is easy to see the energy she brings to the clubs she has become apart of here at Niles West.

“Jensey is always the first to step up when something needs to be done. Her willingness to take initiative and her constant positive energy will take her far in life, she lives out the idea that “leaders go first”; She leads by example, not by showing authority or power. Above all, Jensy serves with humility and grace. She puts her whole heart into her work,” Moy said.

Joseph was nominated because of her dedication and for all of her deserving work she does for the clubs she partakes in at school.

“I am very grateful to be recognized by my mentors. I’m dedicated to the clubs I’m in, and I feel like it’s my responsibility as a member to be excited about and work hard in the club,” Joseph said.
