Adrian Pilkington, a senior software engineering major from Lincoln, was honored as a Student Luminary for his selfless leadership, inclusivity and authenticity exhibited through roles as a Resident Assistant and a Teaching Assistant. The 2021 awards were announced during an April 16 reception at the Nebraska Champions Club.
"He is reliable, brings issues and concerns to me as we serve students," said nominator Ann Koopmann, advisor in computer science and engineering. "(Adrian) finds innovative ways to serve students and more than anything connects with his peers."
Pilkington is one of 10 University of Nebraska-Lincoln students who were awarded Student Luminary Awards to recognize their exceptional leadership and commitment to improving the campus community. Those selected help every Husker feel valued, create a positive campus environment, advocate for positive change, demonstrate a significant and active commitment to inclusion and model academic excellence inside and outside the classroom.
Each Luminary Award recipient was nominated by faculty or staff members on campus and will receive $1,000.
