University of South Carolina senior Elizabeth Ruth Wilson of Georgetown, S.C., received the Steven N. Swanger Leadership Award, the university's second-highest undergraduate honor. The award is named for a former president of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), which sponsors the university's Awards Day. It is given to a graduating senior for exemplary leadership and for making significant contributions to the Carolina community.
Elizabeth Ruth Wilson, a graduate of Georgetown (S.C.) High School, is a Carolina Scholar and a student in the South Carolina Honors College. She was USC's 2011 Woman of the Year and is an aide in the S.C. House of Representatives.
She will graduate next month with five majors from the Darla Moore School of Business (international business, finance, marketing, management science and real estate), and she has studied three languages. Plus, she will graduate after spending just three years at Carolina.
Along with her academic career, she said her best memory at Carolina was starting Regalia for Hope, an initiative that has provided more than 2,000 pairs of handmade earrings to cancer patients in hospitals and oncology centers throughout the Carolinas.
"If I had gone to any other university but USC I wouldn't have been as successful as I have. The signature feature of the faculty and advisers here is they allow you to be yourself. The ability to be me and to explore any area and discipline has been an invaluable experience."
After graduation, she will start the Ph.D. program in management organization at Northwestern University. She plans a career as a professor and researcher, focusing on corporate social responsibility as both an academic and a policy advisor.
