Nominations Sought for 5th Annual Middlebury College Public Service Leadership Awards

The Middlebury College Volunteer Services Program and College President John McCardell are seeking nominees for the fifth annual Middlebury College Public Service Leadership Awards, which recognize students for their volunteer efforts. Currently enrolled Middlebury College students who have actively engaged in public service during the 1998-99 academic year are eligible. Individuals or organizations in the College and/or Addison County community may submit nominations, and students are encouraged to nominate peers, as well as self-nominate. Award winners will receive plaques of appreciation at an honorary dinner, and choose organizations to which College donations will be made on their behalf.

Due by Wednesday, April 15, applications for nominations are available from the student activities office in McCullough Student Center on Old Chapel Road off South Main Street (Route 30). Contact the student activities office at 802-443-3100 for more information.

Middlebury College students have a long tradition of providing volunteer services to the community. Last year about one in every three students-over 700 volunteers-donated time and energy to a wide range of individuals and organizations, from Addison County Women in Crisis and the Sheldon Museum to Mary Hogan Elementary School students and the Porter Medical Center's Round Robin Thrift Store.
