Knight, an NIU alum, embodied what it means to be a student leader. He served NIU as a catalyst for positive change and as a role model for up-and-coming student leaders to follow. He used his time well at NIU, dedicating himself to the betterment of campus life for all students, working hard in various leadership positions and receiving much distinction for his efforts.
