Valerie Martins, a senior at Southern New Hampshire University, was awarded a Student Leader Award for the northeast region. The National Association for Campus Activities annually honors up to five undergraduate students whose contributions at their universities make a difference.

Students are chosen on their academic standings, campus leadership positions and contributions to their campus communities.

Martins, a senior from Belchertown, Mass., is an accounting and economics/finance major and maintains a 3.86 GPA. She serves as treasurer of CAPE, (Coordinators for Activities and Programming Events) and START (Students Today Alumni Relations Tomorrow), is co-chair of Senior Week and Senior Giving, is a member in the SNHU Accounting Association club and is president and editor of the SNHU Yearbook. Martins also serves as a student ambassador, orientation leader and a mentor to high school students.

“Personally, I found Valerie to be an easygoing student who always had a cheerful smile and a ‘good morning’ or ‘good afternoon.’ She is serious about becoming an accountant and has worked diligently to succeed in her accounting program,” states SNHU Professor Laurence Pelletier. “In addition to maintaining an excellent GPA, Valerie has been involved in numerous social and professional activities at Southern New Hampshire University. She is an ideal and model student.”
