Jonathan Ellis Earns Learning to a Greater Degree Award for Leadership in Aviation Program
For Jonathan Ellis, it's all about making the most of your time in college. For this reason, Ellis was recognized with the Learning to a Greater Degree Award this spring.
Ellis is earning his MBA in Ethical Strategic Leadership and is the graduate assistant for the Department of Aviation. Having been in the program for six years, Ellis has focused much of his graduate work on bringing all aspects of UCM Aviation together into one culture.
Ellis' nomination highlighted many of his contributions, including improving the aviation program's newsletter and teaching students about the importance of core values. Ellis also surveyed more than 200 aviation students, faculty and staff to improve the program's sense of community.
Although Ellis' schedule is full with many projects, his mentors, Tony Monetti, Fred Schieszer and Steve Quick inspire him.
"Watching my mentors and seeing what they are capable of, motivates me to keep pushing forward," says Ellis.
Ellis strives to improve the student experience and display the importance of service and communication every day.
"For me, learning to a greater degree is thinking outside the box and using the time you have to serve others," says Ellis. "It's about improving yourself and learning from everyone."
By dedicating his time to creating a culture of service, Ellis exemplifies learning to a greater degree.
