Adrian College Student to Receive Michigan Campus Compact Award for Dedication to Community Service

Junior, Devin Alexander to receive the Commitment to Service Award

ADRIAN, MI (April 15, 2015) - Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC) announced late last month that Devin Alexander, a junior at Adrian College, will be awarded for his dedication and commitment to community service during the 19th annual Outstanding Student Service Awards Celebration, April 18, 2015, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing, MI.

Each year, MiCC 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. This year, over 240 students from 30 member campuses will receive awards.

 

Devin Alexander will receive the Commitment to Service Award.  This award recognizes up to two students per member campus in the state of Michigan for either the breadth or depth of their community involvement or service experiences. Only 37 students will receive this award.

 

“Devin is very involved on campus,” says nominator Troy Schmidli, dean of students at Adrian College. “He is the Student Government President and a voice for the students. He also serves as a Resident Assistant and President of the Business Professionals of America local chapter and as a national officer.”

 

“He is a born leader, and sets an example daily.”

 

Alexander received the nod for the award due to his commitment to the College and greater community. He also received the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Award at Adrian College, this year, for his commitment to promote and educate diversity awareness.

 

MiCC will honor all award recipients at an awards brunch on April 18, 2015, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
