Celeste Smith and Caitlin Hughes embody the leadership skills and spirit that Hobart and William Smith students strive to achieve.
These two William Smith women were the Co-Chairs for Day of Service this fall. Together they spent many hours of their time volunteering to organize the biggest day of service in recent years with over 300 students and alums participating. A tremendous amount of time and energy was dedicated to organize fundraising efforts and soliciting project sites from community organizations. This is one of the many ways Celeste and Caitlin give back to the HWS and Geneva community.
Celeste Smith is a hardworking member of the EMS student group. She dedicates numerous hours of her free time and weekends to EMS duty to serve her peers. She is an active member of the String Ensemble and has been a stand-out cellist during her time at the Colleges. Celeste can also be seen working in the Café and the ORAP Office.
Caitlin Hughes is a leader on campus as well. She can be seen in her role as a Research Assistant for the Center for Teaching and Learning. Some other areas of involvement during her time at the Colleges include, but are not limited to, participation in the Centennial Leadership Program, a volunteer for Junior Achievement at the Community Center, Alternative Spring Break participant for multiple years, and much more.
Through their hard work and dedication Celeste and Caitlin have made their mark on our campus and more specifically the biggest Day of Service in recent years. They are both leaders in every sense of the word!
