Nominations being accepted for ASU MLK student award
Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, executive director for ASU Gammage and ASU MLK Jr. Committee Chair, is soliciting nominations for the 2017 ASU MLK Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award. This year’s theme is "Be the Face of Change."
The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will present a Servant-Leadership Award to an ASU student at the MLK breakfast on Jan. 19, 2017 at the ASU Polytechnic campus.
Servant-leadership is a practical philosophy, which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening and the ethical use of power and empowerment.
ASU Gammage requests help in identifying a student servant-leadership awardee. The student must be currently enrolled full-time, exemplify the ideals of servant-leadership and have a track record of commitment through volunteer service. Candidates may submit his or her resume with this form. Letters of recommendation are acceptable, but no more than two. Self-nominations are encouraged.
The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will provide a $1,500 scholarship to the awardee to be used towards his or her educational costs. This scholarship is available to ASU full-time undergraduate or graduate students. The winner must be a full-time student during the spring 2017 semester.
All applications will be reviewed and three finalists will be selected. Finalists will have 30-minute interviews with the committee on Friday morning, Oct. 14. Finalists will be contacted for their interview. The awardee must be able to attend the breakfast on Jan. 19, 2017.
