Dr. Rosie Cordova nominated Daisy Cortes for Student of the Month. Dr. Cordova stated: “She is a very enthusiastic student. She actively participates in class and shows her leadership by asking questions of concern to the entire class.”
Ms. Cortes is a full-time student, studying for a Bachelor of Business Administration with a minor in Spanish. Daisy attends NAU Extended Campus’ Arizona Western College (AWC) campus in Yuma, Arizona, and expects to graduate in May 2016.
In addition to being a full-time student, Ms. Cortes also works two jobs: a full-time assistant manager at Little Caesars, and a part-time tutor at the AWC KEYS program. Working as an assistant manager at Little Caesars allows Daisy to apply the information she learns at NAU in her job, which reinforces her understanding of the classroom content. As a tutor in the KEYS program, Ms. Cortes assists and motivates students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary degree.
Ms. Cortes is helping to establish The Initial Club at the NAU Yuma campus. This club will help students meet and network with business people in the Yuma area to expand the students’ knowledge of business and, hopefully, help them to obtain a job once their degree program is complete. Ms. Cortes was a member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society prior to joining NAU.
I would like to congratulate Daisy for all of her achievements in the #NAU program! Congratulations on being selected as the March 2015 #NAUBBAStudentoftheMonth!
