Steven Broszko has won the 2010 Tommie Award.
A senior, Broszko has been involved in many aspects of St. Thomas student life, including serving as the president of the first Theater Club on campus and as a resident adviser in Ireland Hall. He also is a member of the Teachers Educating and Creating Hope (T.E.A.C.H) Club and Sigma Tau Delta, a national English literary club.
Broszko is majoring in English and secondary education with a communications minor.
“He represents the essence of the Tommie Award as an outstanding student who was selected for his commitment to scholarship, leadership and campus involvement,” commented Amanda Niskode-Dossett, director of student engagement and Tommie Award coordinator.
Broszko was chosen by students, faculty and staff from a field of three nominees. Teron Buford and Annie Donnellan were the other two Tommie Award finalists.
Broszko was featured in the Winter 2008 St. Thomas magazine in a story titled Waiting for Broszko, which followed him from the first reading of the script from "Rumors," a play by Neil Simon, to curtain rise. The play was staged in fall 2007 in Foley Theater on the St. Thomas campus. A slide show based on the story appears below.
The Tommie Award has been presented annually since 1931, with the exception of 1945 and 1946. Previous award winners can be viewed here.
