Congratulations to Therese Heidemann, Curricular Affairs, who received a SLU Spark! Therese was recognized by Denise Parker, Curricular Affairs, for pursuing excellence.
"Every eight weeks we give subject exams to our third year medical students. Per National Board regulations, students are not permitted to have any personal items at their desktop. This has been an issue as students place their backpacks, etc, in either the front or rear of the room. As individual students complete their exam the noise in the room gets quite loud and disturbs those still examining. Therese took the time to look outside of the box and found a locked room close to the examination where students can store their belongings until they end their exam therefore being able to exit without disturbing their fellow classmates. This will be very beneficial to the students."
