Mercyhurst College students net community service award

For the second year in a row, Mercyhurst's chapter of Sigma Alpha Pi – the National Society of Leadership and Success – has been honored by the organization for having the “Most Dedicated Chapter to Community Service.” The society is comprised of 113,227 members at 213 colleges nationwide.

According to the society’s criteria for the award, at least 10 percent of the members of the chapter must have actively participated in at least one type of service during the academic year, with the majority of that work being hands-on within the community and providing a service. Philanthropic efforts alone do not satisfy the award qualifications. One hundred percent of Mercyhurst’s chapter members participated in community service with the majority taking place at the annual Christmas on Campus celebration. As part of the award, the National Society of Leadership & Success donated $500 to the Mercyhurst chapter.

"Our students live out the mission of Mercyhurst College as Ambassadors of Service so often that it often seems like the norm on campus," said Darcey Kemp, director of the Center for Student Engagement & Leadership Development. "It’s exciting for our students to be recognized on a national level for the work they do."
