Michigan Campus Compact (MCC) is pleased to announce four students from Jackson Community College were awarded for their dedication and commitment to community service during the 14th annual Outstanding Student Service Awards, April 10, 2010, in East Lansing, Mich.
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. Awardees were selected from a nomination pool of nearly 900 students. This year, 192 students from 34 member campuses will receive awards.
Amy Cook, a sophomore from Jackson, received the Commitment to Service Award. This award is given to one student per member campus in the state of Michigan for their commitment to community service. Only 34 students will receive this award. Keenan Crowley of Jackson, Aaron Moeckel of Grass Lake, and Kasey Vaughn of Jackson received the Heart and Soul Award. This award is given to students to recognize their time, effort and personal commitment through service.
