Wednesday, April 27th, 2011
Five Lawrence Tech students won awards from the Michigan Campus Compact (MCC) for their dedication and commitment to community service. The awards were presented on April 9 during the 15th annual Outstanding Student Service Awards Celebration at Michigan State’s Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing. More than 300 students from 42 different universities attended.
Each year, MCC awards students from member colleges and universities across the state for their outstanding commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Three types of awards are given: the Outstanding Community Impact Award, the Commitment to Service Award, and the Heart and Soul Award. This year, over 350 students from 38 member campuses received awards.
Christopher Harris and Katelyn Addy received the Commitment to Service Award, which recognizes two undergraduate students per campus for either breadth and/or depth of community involvement or service experience and the demonstration of meaningful reflection.
Anna Spens, Brad McCarthy, and Andrea Freile received the Heart and Soul Award, which commends students for their time, effort, and personal commitment to their communities through service. McCarthy and Freile were unable to attend the awards ceremony.
The awards ceremony was also attended by Melissa Grunow, director of the leadership program and first year experience, who nominated students for the awards, and Elyse Mathos, AmeriCorps*VISTA.
Michigan Campus Compact is a coalition of college and university presidents who are committed to fulfilling the public purpose of higher education. MCC promotes the education and commitment of Michigan college students to be civically engaged citizens, through creating and expanding academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement.
