Campus Compact named Gabriella Romo, ’21, a 2019 Newman Civic Fellow, an award for inspiring student leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to finding solutions to challenges faced by their communities.
Romo, a global studies major with a focus on globalization and sustainable development who is from San Antonio, Texas, was nominated by Loyola’s president, Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J.
“From her very first months as an undergraduate student, Gabriella stepped into a leadership role on campus, coordinating a campus event to raise awareness of racial injustices, organizing a campus discussion on the U.S. migration systems after she returned from working with migrants at the U.S./Mexico border, and overseeing a gala event with 500 attendees as a fundraiser for the Middle East Relief Initiative,” said Fr. Linnane.
