For the third consecutive year Lewis-Clark State College has been selected for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) announced the 2013 award, which recognizes institutions whose students, faculty, and staff work alongside the community to solve problems.
In the application, LCSC featured an alternative parking design prepared by students in Dr. Jenni Light’s Introduction to Engineering class, the annual Hells Canyon Institute led by Dr. Patricia Keith and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service organized by Lewis-Clark Service Corps.
College students make a significant contribution to their communities through volunteering and service, according to the most recent Volunteering and Civic Life in America report. In 2012, more than 1100 LCSC students, faculty and staff served almost 61,500 hours with a variety of community organizations — a contribution valued at almost $1 million.
