Presentation College was recently notified that it has been named one of the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll recipients by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
“We congratulate the awardees and the students for their dedication to service,” said Wendy Spencer, CEO of CNCS. “These institutions have inspired students and faculty alike to roll up their sleeves and work alongside members of the community to solve problems and improve their neighbors’ lives.”
The Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities. The selection to the Honor Roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government.
“This is a great honor,” said Presentation College President Dr. Margaret A. Huber. “This award really speaks to the hard work and dedication of our students, faculty, and staff, and I couldn’t be more proud.”
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that engages more than five million Americans in service through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, the Social Innovation Fund, and Volunteer Generation Fund, and leads President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve. Through the agency’s Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program, CNCS gives education institutions access to tens of thousands of AmeriCorps alumni with millions of dollars in Segal Education Awards for tuitions and fees.
