The Service-Learning Award is bestowed at the Academic Awards Ceremony following Baccalaureate each year. There were three top nominees for the award. All had demonstrated excellence in academic achievement, through many semesters of service-learning. All had the glowing support of faculty and service-site supervisors. And ALL were already slated to receive the top awards in their respective majors!
The decision was difficult; each person was so deserving that we wished there were three awards to give. Miss Trysten Coffey stood out, with the most “votes,” in part for her positive, infectious attitude toward learning and service.
She was nominated by Regina Pfeiffer and David Coleman, and Dr. Coleman spoke about Trysten’s dedication to service at the Honors Ceremony. Trysten will be attending law school in Michigan this fall.
