Mojica, Offutt honored as emerging women leaders

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

Trina Offutt of Rock Island (second from left) was nominated by Lindsay Fender, registrar. Carmen Mojica of Rock Island (second from right) was nominated by Jaime Delevere, Student Support Services advisor/transfer specialist.

“I nominated Carmen for her contributions to Black Hawk College, for her volunteer efforts and club memberships, and for her outstanding contribution to the community in working at the Martin Luther King Center in Rock Island,” Jaime Delevere said.

“Trina is a dedicated, goal-oriented student working toward a degree in nursing,” Lindsay Fender said. “She excels at managing school, work and family responsibilities. Trina’s desire to help others and succeed will make her a great nurse and woman leader.”

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