Mr. Bearcat: Grad Excels at Serving Campus and Community

Each year Sigma Sigma gives the Mr. Bearcat Award to an outstanding graduating male who shows campus and community involvement, leadership, and "Bearcat Spirit." This year that award went to Shaun Simpson, soon to graduate with a 3.2 GPA and a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

So what has Shaun done to be eligible for this prestigious award? In a nutshell, he has gone above and beyond the call of duty as a Bearcat. Since beginning his freshman year five years ago, Shaun has been a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, the Interfraternity Council, Student Alumni Council, Leadership Institute, 1997 Homecoming Committee and the UC Master Plan Committee. He has served as a Student Orientation Leader, UC Senior Class Vice president, a UC Public Relations Officer and is the winner of several honors and awards over the years. Shaun is also one of the creators of the Crosstown Help-Out, an event that brings UC and XU students together to serve the Cincinnati community.

Aside from these resume builders, Shaun has shown a tremendous amount of UC pride and love for UC basketball. This past basketball season, Shaun organized a bus trip to Chicago to see the Bearcats play DePaul. Shaun is also one of the founders of Rallycats, a student organization dedicated to school spirit.

Finally the time has come for the members of the class of 2000 to graduate and go separate ways. Shaun will soon be moving to Chicago to start a new job with a computer solutions company. He said that "I'm happy to get a job and ready to move on, but it's going to be difficult to leave Cincinnati behind." He says of his experience here, "it's been definitely positive." Clearly, Shaun will miss UC, and UC will miss Mr. Bearcat.
