Student’s Work Ethic Earns Achievement Award


Diana Rodriguez-Agiss’ Thursday afternoon routine this spring semester has been attendance in Professor Miriam Rothman’s Management 300 class in Olin Hall. It’s a required class for the sophomore, who majors in accounting and political science while still maintaining an extracurricular schedule that’s equal to a 40-hours-a-week job.

For Rodriguez-Agiss, though, going to class, getting good grades and actively engaging both on and off campus is, simply, “getting the most out of my education at USD.”

Last Thursday, minutes before walking into Rothman’s classroom, a very special representative from GEICO Insurance — one standing nearly 6 feet tall, wearing a mostly green costume and drawing stares from other students passing by — rewarded Rodriguez-Agiss, a multi-talented student and multi-tasker.

The GEICO gecko was on hand, along with company representative and USD alumna Rocio Rodriguez, to present Rodriguez-Agiss with a “big check” version of a $1,000 achievement award. (Full Story Inside USD)
