On Saturday, April 12, Dr. Terri Tomaszek, Professor, and Natalie Wagner, Director of Student Life had the opportunity to join several Davenport students that were recognized at a banquet at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing. Davenport is a member school of Michigan Campus Compact, a coalition of 38 college and university presidents who are committed to providing community service, service learning, and civic education to college students as part of their college experience. The purpose of the Outstanding Student Service Awards is to recognize higher education students statewide who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to community service and civic engagement in our communities. In doing so, it is the hope that students will be encouraged to continue their efforts through a lifetime commitment to service as responsible citizens to their communities, the state of Michigan, and the world.
The Heart and Soul Award recognizes undergraduate and graduate students for their time, effort and personal commitment to their community through service.
The Davenport students receiving this award include:
Holli Anne Blohm, Alison Bouman, Debra Burton, Corrina Campbell, Scott DeGraaf, Reinier Fontaine-Perez, Z’miece Gaines, Lloyd Haskin IV, Ben Henig, Daniel Hume, Heather Krueger, Mark Matuszewski, Violet Parmeter, Kaylani Rubley, Andreya Teuber, Michael Thomas, and Rebecca Veneklase.
The Commitment to Service Award recognizes two students per MICC member campus for either the breadth or the depth of his/her community involvement or service experience(s) and the demonstration of meaningful reflection.
Our recipients are Anjanette Day from the Flint campus and Suzanne Behrens from the W.A. Lettinga campus.
