Holman named November 2022 Honors Student of the Month
Lilian Holman, a sophomore majoring in Graphic Design from Rendon, Texas, has been selected as the November 2022 Honors Student of the Month.
A graduate of Legacy High School, Ms. Holman was nominated by her instructor, Department of Visual Arts and New Media Associate Professor Peter Tucker, who has had Holman in two courses and currently serves as site supervisor for her Honors Program Social Media internship.
"Lili is an excellent student and an actively engaged classmate to her peers. Lili always develops creative solutions to the sculptural problems given to her in the classroom, and she doesn't shy away from giving honest, helpful input to her peers," Mr. Tucker said.

Additionally, Tucker praised a recent piece Holman made for his Installation Art class, saying, "Every element and every decision she made to create the piece was extremely well thought out. We discuss pushing the content of an artwork further by making decisions based on artistic intent. I rarely see a student embrace the idea so fully. Lili's choices impressed me and her classmates. "
Holman is also engaged in numerous leadership roles on campus and by setting high standards for herself, inspires her peers. She is treasurer of the American Marketing Association, a member of Latinos Unidos and ASL Club and served as a student marshal for the investiture ceremony of President Stephen H. Kolison Jr. She also has served as a host and co-host of Honors Program events, and works tirelessly as the Social Media Intern for the Honors Program.
A recent winner of the Rosa Parks Scholarship competition, Holman presented her work to the Fredonia community at the annual Rosa Parks Presentation and Award Ceremony.
At Fredonia, Holman finds she "can get good personal instruction because the classes are so small." She loves being the social media intern for Honors and aims to "get enough experience to get a good idea of the things I need to do for my job after graduation."
Holman also enjoys hosting and attending "the cozy events where you can do crafts with other students." She advises Honors students to "Find time to have fun and relax!" Holman thanks Honors Program Director Natalie Gerber and Tucker for their support.
