Emory Honored for Outstanding Community Service
Congratulations, Emory University! Continuing a week full of collegiate honors, the university is one of six to be nationally recognized this week with a 2008 Presidential Award for General Community Service, a title given for especially innovative and effective community service. It's a competitive award, and the students at Emory certainly didn't slack off in earning theirs.
Last year, Emory students completed almost 150,000 hours of service with more than 200 organizations and projects. More than 80 percent of Emory's seniors say they were involved in community service while in college.
Students work weekly in projects that tackle poverty relief, environmental conservation and other community needs.
Danny Denton, 22, a senior from Statesboro, is co-director of Volunteer Emory, the campus agency that coordinates service projects.
"We have a tremendous amount of fun doing good for the community," Denton said. "It's amazing to see a kid who gets math for the first time, or a dog adopted, or have a kid at the boys' and girls' club recognize you and jump into your arms, or hear the stories of elderly women at Wesley Woods. That's what keeps us coming back for more."
In addition to Emory: CSU Fresno, Michigan State, Duke, University of Missouri-Kansas City, and Brookhaven College are also being honored with this award.
