I am proud to be given the opportunity to recognize this award winner. She has been involved with Campus Recreation for the better part of the last 12 years.

She keeps herself well informed about all of the programs and events that Campus Rec has to offer and does a stellar job in promoting them to her participants.

Those same qualities combined with her wealth of knowledge as an AFLCA Trainer of Leaders and member of many boards in the wellness industry has made her an invaluable resource for the Group Exercise Program at Campus Recreation. I am honored to present the First Annual Building Block Award in Group Exercise to Lisa Workman.
