2 local students named Dargan fellows

Wayne P. Lubner of Wayne Lubner Consulting and Matt Sullivan of Express Employment Professionals, graduates of St. Norbert College and co-chairs of the Dargan Fellowship Committee at St. Norbert College, have announced two local students as Dargan fellows for the 2018-19 academic year.

Kathryn Kugel, of Shawano, is a sophomore business administration major with a concentration in management and finance and a cumulative GPA of 3.79. She is a member of the Student Government Association and vice president of both the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority and Panhellenic Council of Greek life at St. Norbert College.

Kugel is the recipient of the St. Norbert College Exemplary Leadership Award for two consecutive years and was the Shawano Area Community Foundation Youth Volunteer of the Year.

One of her anonymous references for the fellowship said, “In both her work and academics, Kathryn is an excellent student worker. Her peers look up to her for encouragement and guidance, and she stays organized and motivated easily. I am confident that she will continue to excel in her academics at St. Norbert College and in her work upon graduation.”

Kugel’s goal upon graduation is to pursue a career in finance and take her position internationally.

Cathryn Siolka, of Bonduel, is a junior business major with a human-resource-management concentration and pre-law certificate with a cumulative GPA of 3.93. She is a member of the St. Norbert College Society of Human Resource Management, is president-elect of SNC Colleges Against Cancer, and involved with the Bonduel Wrestling Club and Syble Hopp School. She is the recipient of the SNC Colleges Against Cancer Hope Award, is a Trustee Distinguished Scholar, was Bonduel High School valedictorian and has been placed on the St. Norbert College dean’s list.

One of Siolka’s anonymous references for the fellowship said, “I have no doubt that she is a cornerstone of the many organizations of which she is a member. It is a loss to the college that she is, despite all her extracurricular involvement, managing to graduate an entire year early. That should be a testament to her focus and work ethic.”

Siolka’s plans upon graduation are to pursue a career in human resource management and to further her knowledge, develop additional experience and increase her perspective through work and life.

The William E. Dargan Fellowship was created by alumni to honor the late professor and his 30 years of service to the college.
