Students honored for their leadership, contributions as community volunteers
Every Spring Quarter, the College, the University Community Service Center, and the Office of the Reynolds Club and Student Activities honor a select number of student leaders for their contributions to the campus community.
Student Leader Awards are given for contributions to any part of campus life. Service Awards are conferred on students who demonstrate outstanding social responsibility, and Student Marshals are chosen based on their academic record and commitment to extracurricular activities.
The UCSC awards were conferred at the center’s annual Volunteer Recognition Reception, Tuesday, May 25, at the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, and the Student Leader Awards were presented at the College Honors Awards Assembly Wednesday, May 26.
The Perry S. Herst Prize is intended to recognize two graduating seniors in the College who have combined study with social responsibility. This UCSC Volunteer Recognition Award was presented this year to Ryan Hollon and Maria Gaona.
