Gentleman of the Day: Logan Mauk
Meet today’s gentleman: Logan Mauk is setting the standard for gentlemen at Virginia Tech. #NeWGents
In today’s society, it is sometimes hard to remember that real gentlemen still exist. However, the women of the Virginia Tech chapter of NeW believe the Logan Mauk sets an excellent example for how a true gentleman should act. Logan shines in all categories that we believe are representative of a perfect gentleman: leadership, community involvement, character, and scholastic achievement. As a junior double major in accounting and finance, Logan has a full academic schedule with several challenging courses and maintains an impressive GPA. He was selected to be in the honors program, was recently nominated for membership of ODK, and has been on both Dean’s List and the Corps of Cadets Commandant’s List every semester that he has been at Virginia Tech. In addition, he helps lead his honors reading group and he has tutored countless fellow business majors in their business courses. Through his involvement in the Corps of Cadets, he has earned several high-ranking leadership positions, including Battalion Sergeant Major and Company First Sergeant. He was required to supervise many cadets and maintain their accountability at several Corps events. He takes Virginia Tech’s motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), to heart by leading a life of service. The Corps provides several opportunities for the cadets to volunteer among the Blacksburg community, and Logan participates several times a semester in these events. Annually, he participates in Relay for Life, The Big Event, and volunteers for the 3.2 for 32 run honoring those who passed away on April 16, 2007. For those who have met him, he is an absolute inspiration. Although he is a member of the Corps of Cadets, he is not preparing for a military lifestyle. He chooses to be a civilian in the Corps because he believes the discipline, leadership skills, and brotherhood that he has been taught through the Corps has shaped him to more positively impact his university and community. Do you know many people who would wake up at 5AM three days a week and participate in rigorous and time-consuming military activities solely to become a better servant of his community? We surely don’t! His motivation and commitment are truly encouraging to his friends and classmates. Even though his schedule is constantly busy, he is always willing to drop what he is doing to change a friend’s spare tire or lend a listening ear. And we can’t help but mention the fact that whether in his uniform or not, he is always dressed to impress! We are proud to recognize Logan for all that he does, and we know that he would best serve as the 2014 NeW Gentleman of the Year!
