Kevin Jenkins is the winner of the 2014 Chancellor's Leadership Award at UW-Superior.

This award is given to a member of the graduating class who is committed to personal growth and has made a positive contribution to their peers, campus, and community.

Jenkins has demonstrated these qualities and quickly impressed his instructors with remarkable academic work and a natural ability to play a leadership and mentoring role in classroom discussions and activities. He was a recipient of the 2012 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship. He is a familiar face at campus events in Superior and Madison and has held a variety of campus and community service roles.

Besides excelling in the classroom, Mr. Jenkins has demonstrated his keen ability to use his talents in the workforce. He is currently the Chief of Staff for a Wisconsin State Senator at the capitol in Madison. He is a strong supporter for UW-Superior and a great legislative ambassador for the campus and region.

The nontraditional distance learning student connects with campus all the way from Madison. Jenkins makes it a priority to stay connected with students, faculty and staff.

The senior presented not one, but two posters at the recent Undergraduate Research Scholarship and Creative Activity Celebration on campus in the YU on April 16. One for the Department of Natural Sciences and another for the Department of Communicating Arts.

Kevin is also a veteran having served in the United States Air Force. He also served as the Mayor of Rhinelander from 2002-2005.

Jenkins is a candidate for a Bachelor of Science degree (Summa Cum Laude). His major is Communicating Arts with a Geography minor. He obtained his degree through the UW-Superior Distance Learning Center.
