LASSO Center Tutoring, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater
Hayden Fox, lead tutor in the LASSO Center at OSU, was described as “a true leader who mentors others and develops his team” in his nomination for the organization’s Outstanding Mentor award.
In his role as lead tutor, Hayden, who is a junior working toward a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, directs a team of tutors, ensuring they receive proper training and guidance to perform in an exemplary manner.
“Hayden stands apart, as he is always open to helping. Even as a busy, pre-med student, Hayden is always there to help other students,” says Susan Malec, LASSO Center coordinator for tutoring services.
“He has a pleasant personality and goes above and beyond by seeking to help those around him,” she adds. “Students gain clearer understanding on their courses from Hayden’s one-on-one tutoring. He is patient and kind to all he interacts with.”
