Noteworthy: Zeigler received the 2013 Eugene P. Beard Award for Leadership in Ethics, an award that's given to a Duquesne University student and one faculty member each year who “exemplify the university's commitment to moral and spiritual values,” according to school officials.
Family: Father, Jim; mother, Sheila; brother, Jake
Education: Portersville Christian School, class of 2009. Zeigler will graduate from Duquesne University this month with a bachelor's degree in information systems management and accounting.
Background: Zeigler joined Duquesne's student government soon after starting classes at the university. He was elected student body president as a sophomore and was unopposed in running for a second term in his junior year. In student government, he said, he enjoyed helping campus groups realize their missions and serve the community, and he helped mentor students through a “future leaders” program.
Quote: “It always makes me so happy to talk (with the other students), click with them and watch them start to grow and take leadership roles in their organizations.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
