To acknowledge members of the Chaminade community that go above and beyond in their contributions to the university and the community, Chaminade hosted its 14th Annual Co-Curricular Awards dinner on April 17 in Clarence T.C. Ching Conference Center. Twenty seven awards were presented to three student organizations, one staff member and 18 students.
The Division of Student Affairs, Campus Ministry and the Office of Advising and Career Development presented the awards at the celebration. Every recipient demonstrated outstanding leadership by playing an integral part in making Chaminade a better place to learn.
A few of the awards presented included the Male and Female Athlete of the Year awards, the Dean of Students’ Special Recognition award and the Brother Joseph Becker Awards of Excellence, which are presented to one freshman, sophomore, junior and senior each year who have displayed exceptional leadership in co-curricular activities throughout the academic year.
In addition to honoring outstanding individuals, awards were given to the Chaminade Student Nurses Association and the Rotaract Club, student organizations that have fostered a positive environment at the university.
The students, staff and student-run organizations recognized at the Annual Co-Curricular Awards, and others that share the same commitment to leadership and service, are what make receiving an education at Chaminade so special.
