YSU’s Nicholas Meditz was recently honored by Ohio’s secretary of state for his “outstanding leadership as President of the student government at Youngstown State University.”

As SGA president, Meditz of Canfield received a certificate of commendation from Jennifer Brunner that recognized his contributions while serving to continue the excellence of the university.

Brunner writes, “The accomplishments and consistent successes of Nicholas Meditz are testaments to what can be done for the lives of others and for our communities. The deserved recognition he has received is an inspiration to others for what they can achieve with similar exemplary attitude, dedication and spirit.”

Meditz, a finance senior at YSU, tackled many issues relevant to the student population while president, including advising, smoking on campus and parking, and he has additionally had success in community service efforts across the university and throughout the Mahoning Valley.

Graduating in May, Meditz will continue serving his yearlong term until spring commencement. He plans to work in the finance field and will be pursuing an MBA or a master’s in computational finance.
