Amber Cumings has tallied a remarkable 478.5 service hours during her time in Honors. Second by only 12 hours to our Outstanding Scholar Michelle Dunn. But we’re not just recognizing quantity tonight we’re recognizing Amber’s commitment to service. Amber has regular involvement with both Circle K and the University Eye Center, clearly indicating a deep commitment to the service for the public good that is core to our mission in Honors.
Iva Haven exemplifies the idea of service as habit. The vast majority of her recorded service hours in 1-hour and 2-hour increments, mostly with petsavers and the Ferris Pharmacy Care Clinic. She has integrated service into her career aspirations, and is deeply committed to continuing her service in the future.
Rachel Garrity has completed four mission trips during her time in honors, travelling to North Carolina and Chicago, among others–if you are counting, that is ALL of her spring breaks. She also served as a peer mentor, guiding her mentees to engage with service.
