Zach Glover is the recipient of this year’s Daniel C. Berrey Leadership Award, which recognizes students who demonstrate the ability to lead and bring out the best in others.
A biomedical engineering major from Edwards, Illinois, Glover is a residential advisor and peer mentor for University of Missouri Residential Life. He is active in planning and coordinating engagement activities and instrumental in helping new students adjust to campus life.
Glover is also president of Alpha Epsilon, an MU biomedical engineering honors society, and vice president of Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honors society. He plans to become a medical doctor after his time at Mizzou.
“Zach is a fine example of the type of student Daniel C. Berrey was,” said Tyler Page, director of Residential Life. “He strives to make people feel at home in the residence halls through leadership positions, weekly res hall events and helping residents meet their neighbors. Everything Zach does in his various leadership roles gives other students a chance to flourish so they, too, can support one another.”
The Daniel C. Berrey Leadership Award was established by the Berrey family in honor of their son who died in 1995. Berrey was highly involved in Residential Life leadership, founding clubs and participating in student organizations.
