Black Hawk College recently honored two students as emerging women leaders at the Women’s Connection “Women in Leadership” event.

Breann Nelson of Moline (second from left) was nominated by Tiffany Hamilton, coordinator of student engagement (left), and Mariah Williams of Moline (second from right) was nominated by Marceia Duhm, coordinator of career planning and placement (right).

Nelson is the financial administrator for the Quad-Cities Campus Student Government Association.

“I nominated Bre because she has been the glue for SGA that keeps a group consisting of a majority of men focused and determined to be successful leaders of the student body,” Hamilton said.

“Bre is a take-charge kind of lady who I have had the honor of watching blossom into a strong, confident woman in the past several months.”

Williams worked for Duhm as a career assistant in the Career Services Center at the Quad-Cities Campus.

“I nominated Mariah because she is such a great example of a young mom trying to follow her dream of completing her BSN, starting with completing her ADN here at Black Hawk. College,” Duhm said.

“She was always very thorough, though friendly and helpful, with our clients and received many compliments on her demeanor. She wants to make a difference in the world – and already has, whether she knows it or not!”

The purpose of the Women’s Connection’s Emerging Women Leaders Recognition Program is to honor regional female collegiate students who are exhibit exceptional leadership initiative and high academic achievement, and who are making a difference in their school and community.
