UCF wins President’s volunteer service award

UCF was recently presented with the 2010 President’s Volunteer Service Award, Gold Level, which recognizes organizations that provide 15,000 volunteer service hours or more to their communities.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a special recognition presented on behalf of President Barack Obama. It is part of a national recognition program created in 2003 through the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize volunteer activities.

UCF received the award through its partnership with Junior Achievement, an official certifying organization for the award, which honors corporations that provide volunteers to teach educational programs. It is the third consecutive year that UCF has received this prestigious honor.

Nicholson School of Communication Instructor Steve Neel, and his students, are a major part of the Junior Achievement volunteer efforts. This award presented is due, in no small measure, to the effective and successful work that Neel performs with Junior Achievement.
