Stephen G. Winkel of Watertown, Conn. honored at Fairfield University
Stephen G. Winkel of Watertown, Conn., was honored with a Student Achievement Award from Fairfield University's Alumni Association at its annual Student Awards Dinner for developing a student leadership program at Fairfield.
During a two-year internship in student activities, Steve researched the S.K.I.L.L program at other Jesuit institutions and developed a program for Fairfield. S.K.I.L.L is a leadership program that helps individuals to develop their interpersonal and communication skills. The letters represent: Service exemplifying Jesuit ideals and service to the community; Knowledge of oneself and how one works with others; Integrity in building one's character; Linkages to the business world and other resources; and Literacy for communication.
The S.K.I.L.L. program at Fairfield has grown from 20 participants to over 70 students, paving the way for future student leaders.
Steve also served as director of publicity for the Fairfield University Student Association, was co-coordinator for special events for new student programs, and oversaw all aspects of Senior Week for the Class of 2000.
In addition, he was a member of the Glee Club, a facilitator to the Class of 2003 and served as a Mission Volunteer to Duran, Ecuador, through Fairfield's Global Outreach program.
