Senior software engineering major Adrian Pilkington was recently honored with a Student Luminary Award.

Ten University of Nebraska-Lincoln students — eight undergraduates and two graduate students — received Student Luminary Awards to recognize their exceptional leadership and commitment to improving the campus and community.

Pilkington was recognized for his selfless leadership, inclusivity, and authenticity exhibited through roles as a Resident Assistant and a Teaching Assistant.

“He is reliable, brings issues and concerns to me as we serve students. He finds innovative ways to serve students, and more than anything, connects with his peers,” Ann Koopman, nominator, said.

The awards were announced during an April 16 reception at the Nebraska Champions Club. Those selected demonstrate help every Husker feel valued, create a positive campus environment, advocate for positive change, demonstrate a significant and active commitment to inclusion and model academic excellence inside and outside the classroom.

Each student was nominated by faculty or staff members on campus and will receive $1,000.
