PSC Seeks Nominations for Community Service Awards

Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– More than 61 million people nationwide generously donate their time and talents to their communities. Prairie State College is seeking nominations for those volunteers living in the college’s district for two community services awards: one award to honor a community member and another to honor a PSC graduate.

The first is the Dr. James H. Griffith Community Service Award, given to a 2010 PSC graduate. Nominees should be a person or group who has contributed in an extraordinary way to the community. The award is named after former Trustee Dr. James H. Griffith, who served for 25 years on the Prairie State Board of Trustees.

The second award is the Michael R. Monteleone Community Service Award, given to a community member of the PSC district. Nominees must be a person or group who has contributed in an extraordinary way to education through community service, as either a volunteer or a community leader. A nominee’s service efforts should be within the PSC district, although additional activities in other areas would be recognized. Also, the nominee should not be employed in the community service or public service field. The award is named after former Trustee and Board Chair Michael R. Monteleone, who served on the Board of Trustees for 21 years, from 1981 to 2002.

All nominations must arrive at the PSC President’s Office no later than Friday, April 16. To receive a nomination form or for more information, call Deb Havighorst, executive assistant to the Board of Trustees, at (708) 709-7918.
