BOULDER — University of Colorado women's golfer Alisha Lau has been named one of five honorees of the 2020-21 Student Leader of the Year, as announced by the University of Colorado Boulder's Center for Leadership.
"It's a huge honor to have even been nominated for this award," Lau said. "This recognition is beyond anything I could have expected for myself during my college career. I wouldn't have been able to achieve this without the endless support from our LCDP department, my coaches, our SAAC exec team and everyone else who has helped me develop/pushed me during my college career within athletics!"
Lau, a junior on the golf team, is part of the SCRIPPS Leadership Program. A media design major, Lau is the vice-president of long term and special projects on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
