Outstanding Service-Learning Student Award
This award in service-learning is given to a student who has performed service in an exemplary manner for a significant number of hours, therein growing in command of the subject matter of the course and becoming more aware of the poverty and oppression in our society. The awardee shows some determination to work at alleviating those conditions.
To be considered for this, the candidate must have:
- Completed approximately sixty hours of service-learning,
- Performed that service in an exemplary manner as attested by the cooperating agency,
- Demonstrated to the satisfaction of the course professor that the service contributed to the student’s command of the subject matter,
- Exhibited in the reflection process a heightened awareness of persons who are in need.

Students who do 50+ hours beyond service-learning course requirements earn a $50 prize.
To qualify, students MUST follow standard service-learning procedures:
- Register for service-learning.
- Serve at an approved site/work with an approved agency or project (service-learning course instructor and service-learning director must deem that the service is successfully “connected” to the academic material).
- Complete all course requirements related to the service (minimum number of hours, reflection, etc.).
Then, they must continue the same service commitment for at least 50 hours within that semester.
- Submit all hours verified by supervisor signature on the timesheet.
- Earn a positive evaluation by the supervisor.
Every so often, we find that students go above and beyond the requirements for service-learning for their classes, dedicating their free time and service to the community. Dr. Ronnie Mulford had the brilliant idea of recognizing these exemplary students. She graciously sponsored an award of $50 for each student who gives 50 hours above and beyond the hours required for class.
Mahalo to sponsor Auntie Ronnie for her generous support of our service-learning students!
