The UNF Alumni Association selected Angela Inciong as the recipient of the Senior Service Award for the summer 2017 graduating class. The UNF Alumni Association selects a graduating senior each semester for outstanding service to the University and the community through volunteerism.

Angela is graduating today from the Brooks College of Health with a Bachelor of Health Administration degree. A remarkable student while at the University of North Florida, Angela exemplifies our spirit of servant-leadership and civic commitment through her desire to help and lead others. Mei Zhao, professor and master of health administration program director, shared that “Angela is an inspiring student who works diligently and with determination for the success of others in our programs. Her dedication and advocacy of her peers personally and professionally should more than qualify her for this award.”

Angela’s foundation for service is truly based on an understanding that the most important thing she could share with others was her time. On campus, Angela actively sought out leadership opportunities in the Health Administration Student Association and the Women in Business Society. It was here that she developed a passion for influencing fellow students and encouraging their educational and professional development. In the Health Administration Student Association, Angela was successful in building stronger relationships between UNF students and leaders of local healthcare organizations. She also assisted Brooks College of Health Advising by welcoming groups of local high school students and offering advice on how to become a successful college student.

In the community, Angela was active in C.A.M.P. Osprey, an innovative leadership mentoring program that pairs collegiate student leaders from the University of North Florida with Duval County Public School students in grades 5-9. According to C.A.M.P. Osprey program director, Matthew Ohlson, “Angela demonstrated a win-win attitude in her commitment to the program. She went above and beyond to meet expectations of not only the course but in achieving the goal of desiring to create a positive impact in her mentees.” Angela eventually became a Lead Mentor and worked with eight students at the River City Science Academy on a weekly basis focusing on public speaking, time management and leadership skills.

Angela’s many involvements and contributions go far beyond what is included here, and truly reflect that she is an outstanding Osprey. She is an example of a passionate, conscientious and driven leader and a great representative of the University of North Florida. She characterizes what the Senior Service Award represents, and we have no doubt that she will be successful in her next journey and make us proud to call her an Osprey alumna.
