Undergraduate Fellow Kyle Lang '19 Selected as a Winner of the Spirit of Princeton Award

May 1, 2019

Congratulations to James Madison Program Undergraduate Fellow Kyle Lang '19, who was selected as one of eight recipients of the 2019 Spirit of Princeton award.

The following are excerpts from the announcement published in the Daily Princetonian on April 29, 2019:

The prize is conferred to students who have made contributions to the University through “student organizations, athletics, community service, religious life, residential life, and the arts.” It was first given in 1995. 

Lang, a psychology major from West Salem, Wis., has served as a treasurer and ministry team member for the Aquinas Institute, as well as a Peer Academic Advisor in Forbes. Among his passions are music — he played French horn in the Princeton University Orchestra and Sinfonia — and running, having received the Martin A. Dale ’53 Award in 2017 to run across the United States.

“‘Spirited’ is not the first word I would use to describe myself, so it was surprising to receive the email notifying me that I had been nominated for the Spirit of Princeton Award,” Lang said. “It is very humbling to know that many people in the campus community took the time to write a nomination. I am grateful to the friends, staff, and faculty who have helped make my Princeton experience a positive one.”
