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.

Age: 22

Residence: Uptown

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.”
