Over 70 schools were present at the conference.

 "Ryan is bright, talented, enthusiastic and confident - in short, he's an exceptional representative of Cameron University," says Jennifer Holland, Dean of Student Services. "The Outstanding Student Leader Award is a prestigious honor, and we are so proud of Ryan for exemplifying the qualities required for consideration. He is a much deserving recipient whose leadership abilities make him a role model for all Cameron students."

 Faucett is in his second year as co-chair of CU's Programming Activities Council, a student-run organization in which student volunteers are involved in the planning and development of campus events for all Cameron students. He is member of the Presidential Leader University Scholars (PLUS) program and is active in the Student Government Association and Beta Rho, a student organization that promotes pride and spirit in CU and gives back to the community. He currently serves as a representative on the Student Housing Association and has participated on a number of committees.
