GRANVILLE, Ohio — The University of Mount Union is proud announce Hayley Maher ’21, an exercise science major of Greenville, Ohio, for the Charles J. Ping Student Service Award, sponsored by Ohio Campus Compact (OCC). 

Maher serves as the president of both Mount Union’s chapter of the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and its Catholic organization For Love of Christ the King (FLOCK), as well as a member of the Green Raider sustainability organization on campus.

According to the OCC website, the award is designed to recognize and honor undergraduate students for their outstanding leadership and contributions to community service or service-learning on their campus and within their community. These students represent the next generation of civic leaders and problem solvers. The award is named in honor of Charles J. Ping, who served as President of Ohio University from 1975 – 1994. 

“Through all of her volunteer, classroom, and employment experiences Hayley goes above and beyond what is asked of her,” said Mount Union President Tom Botzman. “She never fails to put others before herself, making her the ideal Charles J. Ping award recipient. I am proud of all that Hayley has accomplished in her time at Mount Union and am confident she will represent our university well in her future endeavors.” 

“Many students will participate in volunteerism or community service during college, and some will rise above and stand out in their leadership ability and compassion for others. Ohio Campus Compact is pleased to recognize 12 compassionate leaders with the Charles J. Ping Student Service Award for 2021,” Richard Kinsley, executive director of OCC.
