“Megan Espinoza regularly participates in class—whether she is on Zoom or in person. Her independent hard work provides a foundation to ask excellent, well-informed questions that benefit the entire class. She’s very driven and goes above and beyond to maximize her education. For example, she attended an optional lab activity where students used model kits to understand the 3-dimensional shapes of molecules.
I nominate her for student of the month.” —Faculty nomination
