College Receives National Recognition for Community Service Efforts
Trinity Christian College has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts and service to disadvantaged youth for 2007. Trinity students volunteered more than 3,000 hours through the College’s Office of Community Partnerships, student service efforts, and classroom-related service opportunities.
For 2006, the College was named to the honor roll “with distinction for hurricane relief service” in recognition of the 3,200 hours students, faculty, and staff volunteered in clean-up efforts.
“As we seek to shape the lives of our students and encourage our graduates in their callings and vocations,” said Dr. Steven Timmermans, president of Trinity Christian College, “I’m reminded that a servant-heart is critical in our mission to affect spirit-led, societal transformation. It is a joy for Trinity to be recognized for promoting community service.”
Two of Trinity’s premier community service programs in the Office of Community Partnerships are the Childs Elementary School Project and Restoration Ministries—Kids Club. Read more.
“Our students’ dedication to shared partnership, their understanding of the needs of communities in transition, and their love for the Lord are what make the wheels of our office turn,” said Felecia Thompson, executive associate to the president for community partnerships.
Launched in 2006, the Community Service Honor Roll is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for its commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. For more information, visit www.nationalservice.gov/honorroll.
