Four students receive Michigan Campus Compact awards

BIG RAPIDS - Four students were awarded by Michigan Campus Compact for their commitment and dedication to community service, including Jillian Kersh of Tawas City, Barbie Kolar of Temperance, Bret Muter of Saginaw and Nichole Wheelock of Traverse City.

MCC annually awards students from colleges and universities across the state. Three types of awards were given: the Outstanding Community Impact Award, the Commitment to Service Award and the Heart and Soul Award.

Muter received the Commitment to Service Award, which honors students for their community service at individual college and university campuses as part of their education throughout their college career. Only 24 students were honored this year with this award. Kersh, Kolar and Wheelock received Heart and Soul awards, an award which recognizes nominees for their time, effort and personal commitment to their communities through service.

The students were honored during an awards brunch in April at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing.

MCC is a non-profit organization that promotes the education and commitment of Michigan college students to become civically engaged citizens through creation and expansion of academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement.
