Vince Marshall has shown a tremendous work ethic and dedication to his studies, Phi Delta Theta, and Butler University from the moment he set foot on campus. His superb work in his three years at the Health and Recreation Complex on Butler’s campus earned him a position as the Undergraduate Intern for HRC Operations, where he helps oversee a staff of over 50 employees and manage finances for the building.
Vince’s passion for his fellow students led him to serve on Student Government Association’s Program Board for 3 years and as a student senator for 1 year, giving him an opportunity to work with administrators to answer student concerns. Furthermore, he has shown his love for acclimating first year students to campus in his role as a Student Orientation Guide (SOG) for 2 years, where he welcomed new students, helped facilitate discussion about academics and student life, and get students excited to begin their journey at Butler. His stupendous work in this role landed him a position as a Student Orientation Coordinator this past year, where he worked with a team of five other students and staff members to oversee all of the SOGs, plan Welcome Week activities, and make 1,400+ students’ transition from high school to college smooth and enjoyable.
Vince’s consistent dedication to his schoolwork, his peers, and the organizations in which he is involved earned him the Chapman Champion award in January. This award is given to a student who “shows consistent hard work, outstanding team work, dedication and overall excellence.” Because of his excellent leadership qualities and experiences, Vince was an incredibly deserving recipient of this award.
As a Human Movement and Health Sciences Education major, Vince learns all about research and thinking behind many topics including athletics, fitness, recreation, and health and applies that knowledge to promote programs for health and fitness. He is excited to put his years of experience at Butler toward medical school and a future career as a doctor. As a result of his hard work over the last several semesters, Vince recently earned the SHAPE America Major of the Year award, which “celebrates outstanding undergraduate students in the fields of health, physical education, recreation, & dance.” To earn this award, he had to maintain a GPA above 3.0 and serve his school and community for at least two years. He will be recognized at a national convention in Boston in March.
As a pre-med student, as a Phi, and as an individual, Vince is a diligent, passionate, upstanding young man. His excellent leadership qualities will carry him far and help him change the lives of countless individuals who come into contact with him.
