OACS is seeking nominations for the 2013 William Aaron Pathfinder Award for Outstanding Community Service, one of eighteen Magnolia Awards presented by the Office of Leadership Development and Intercultural Affairs. With awards ranging from demonstrated leadership in intramural sports to commitment to cultural education, the Magnolia Awards recognize outstanding leaders across the campus community. Current juniors or seniors who wish to be considered for the Pathfinder Award should submit all nomination materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 15th. A completed *nomination form will include the following:
- Statement of support by applicant’s nominator
- Comprehensive list of all student’s community service activities and leadership roles
The William Aaron Pathfinder award is named in recognition of William Aaron (Class of ’89), whose own path-finding led to the creation of the Office of Volunteer Activities – now the Office of Active Citizenship and Service. The award acknowledges students whose uncommon community service efforts and leadership skills demonstrate vision, creativity, and innovation. This award also celebrates Vanderbilt University’s extraordinary history of service to the Nashville community.
A selection committee, formed by the Office of Active Citizenship and Service, will review all nominations following the February 15th submission deadline and notify the chosen award winners. Recipients will each receive a $250 honorarium.
