ing from ages two to 85. She worked in
Michigan prisons, organizing educa-
tional programs on AIDS. She worked
in a shelter for battered Black women,
providing services as a nurse.
Somehow, Nursing senior Catharine
Quinn finds time for her studies.
This year Marisela Martinez became
actively involved in the Socially Active
Latino Student Association (SALSA),
helped plan Chicano History Week and
Latino/a History Month, and formed a
new organization, the Latino Theatre

Martinez is an LSA first-year stu-
dent.
Quinn and Martinez - along with
14 other individuals and organizations
- won Outstanding Student Leader

awards yesterday in a ceremony spon-
sored by the Office of Student Affairs
and coordinated by the Student Organi-
zation Development Center.
'This is the heart and
soul of the institution
...We don't often stop to
say "thank you".'
--Royster Harper
Dean of Students
Royster Harper, University dean of
students and associate vice president
for student affairs, delivered the key-
note speech in place of Vice President
for Student Affairs Maureen Hartford,
who was ill.
Harper said, "This is the heart and
soul of the institution," gesturing grandly
to indicate the assembled award-win-
ners and nominees gathered in the Union

Ballroom for the ceremony. "This is the
meat-and-potato group.... We don't of-
ten say 'thank you."'
Students were selected by a com-
mittee of faculty and students, who
judged nominees based on leadership
siIls and commitment to the Univer-
sity community.
David Garcia, executive vice presi-
dent of the Interfraternity Council and a
student member of the selection com-
mittee said, "'The nominees were of
really a very high quality. So many
different organizations have done great
things in the University and in the com-
munity."
Quinn agreed, saying, "(The win-
ners) are the tip of the iceberg."
Garcia added that he would like to
see more publicity and more nominees
next year. "'There are certainly others
out there who deserve recognition," he
said.

Leaders commemorate 50th
anniversary of ghetto uprising

WARSAW, Poland (AP) -As sur-
vivorsand worldleadershailedthe cour-
age of the Warsaw ghetto uprising in
50th anniversary ceremonies yesterday,
the rebellion's last living leader ques-
tioned whether its lesson had been
learned.
"The struggle we put up half a cen-
turyago in Warsaw reminds me of what
is going on now in the former Yugosla-
via. The main analogy is the passive-
ness of the world," Marek elnan told
the Zycie Warszawy newspaper.

Israeli PresidentYitzhakRabin, U.S.
Vice President Al Gore on his first
foreign trip and Polish President Lech
Walesa led the commemoration.
Theofficialevents wereonly aback-
drop to the excruciating memories,
miracles of hope for future generations
offered by the Jewish ghetto survivors
returning from around the world.
"Most of my family was killed dur-
ing the uprising and their memory is
precious to me," said Australian Boris
Kaplon. "That is why I came."

The University Mentorship Program needs students
who are sophomores, juniors, and seniors during the
1993-1994 academic year to serve as mentors.The
Mentorship Program is designed to give incoming and
continuing students the chance to connect with two
different people-mentors- who are knxwledgeable
about the University and who share their academic and
career interests
Mentors are volunteers who guide by sharing their
experience and their knowledge of the University.
Mentors provide their "mentees" with insight on what it
takes to be successful at the University and in future

careers, along with the support and encouragement to
help them meet their goals.
As a mentor, you willbe paired with a faculty or staff
member with whom you'll share mentoring duties. You'll
also be matched with two or more mentees-incoming
first year or transfer students, or continuing Mentorship
Program sophomores. All of you will be matched by
academic or career interests.
We need mentors who are committed to helping other
students make the most of their years at Michigan. Don't
you wish you had a mentor?
