Olivia Birkhead was named a 2012 recipient of the Housley Principled Leadership Scholarship. This scholarship was awarded to three outstanding participants of the Housley Principled Leadership Program who exemplified Kevin Housley’s principle centered leadership qualities, infectious enthusiasm, and maintained a sincere engagement in the course.
“I feel so honored to have received this scholarship and wish that I could go through the program again, and again. The scholarship only affirms my actions as a leader and helps motivate me to be proactive in all that I do and give back to my community and Texas State University,” Birkhead said.
Olivia is passionate about helping future Bobcats feel at home at Texas State – she was President of University Ambassadors and worked in the Visitors Center. She graduated with a 4.0 GPA this May and plans to continue her education in Texas State’s MBA program.
