Alexandra Ulbricht, a junior communication major of Alliance, has been awarded Ohio Campus Contact’s (OCC) Charles J. Ping Student Service Award for her contributions to community service.
Ulbricht was nominated for her work with Project MORE, a one-on-one reading tutoring program at Washington Elementary School in Alliance. She serves as campus liaison for the program, recruiting volunteers and promoting the program as well as also serving as a tutor.
Dick Kinsley, executive director of Ohio Campus Compact, presented Ulbricht with the award at the annual Senior Recognition and Honors Convocation held Thursday, April 23 at the College.
Ohio Campus Compact is a non-profit membership organization of 49 Ohio colleges and universities with strong community service, service-learning, and/or civic engagement programs on their campuses.
The OCC annually awards the Charles J. Ping Award to undergraduate students with outstanding leadership and contributions to community service on their campus and within their community. Candidates showing evidence of exemplary community service are nominated by the president of his or her college or university. The Ping award recognizes student efforts, from individual commitment to service and community, to the ability to create an organization and to involve others. The OCC is especially interested in efforts that have connected service with academic study or designed programs with long-term community support.
