Four FGCU students were awarded the Excellence in Civic Engagement stole on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Jennifer Hays, Carlie Pierre, Jessica Sauer and Rachel Whittaker collectively accumulated 2,717 hours of service learning hours during their time at FGCU.

According to the Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement website, the office “recognizes up to 10 graduating seniors each semester who greatly excel in engagement and service to their community.”

FGCU requires students to have at least 80 service learning hours to graduate. To be eligible for the stole, students need to complete 400 or more hours.

To be eligible for the stole, students have to fill out an application, and all service learning hours must be turned in a month prior to the application deadline.

There is an application packet to be completed, which includes a personal statement, a letter of support from a community partner and another letter of support from a member of FGCU’s faculty and staff who has knowledge of one’s service to their community.

Students will then be selected to receive the Excellence in Civic Engagement recognition by a Selection Committee appointed by the Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement.

Recipients are then awarded at a special ceremony luncheon.

For more information on the Excellence in Civic Engagement stole contact Director of Service-Learning Jessica Rhea at 239-590-7016 or email her at jrhea@fgcu.edu.
