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