GROVE CITY, Pa. – Grove City College seeks nominations for the 31st annual Campus-Community Awards to be presented in November. The awards aim to publically recognize individuals who personally strengthen town-gown relationships. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 18, 2013.
The nominee for the community award must be a local individual who has demonstrated or cultivated positive relationships between Grove City College and one or more community groups.
The nominee for the campus award must be a College employee or current student who donates substantial hours of volunteer service that benefits one or more organizations in the Grove City area and engenders a positive and engaged outlook between community and the College.
The award is named for Florence E. MacKenzie, wife of former Grove City College president Dr. Charles S. MacKenzie. She sought to cultivate the relationship between the College and the Grove City Borough community. Her efforts and involvement included serving as president of Grove City Woman’s Club, the Shakespeare Club, the Women’s Bowling League, secretary of the local United Way and president of the Grove City Hospital Board of Trustees, where she oversaw the merger of the Bashline/Rossman and Grove City Hospitals, today known as the Grove City Medical Center.
Following her death in December 1981, President MacKenzie created the Campus-Community Awards to honor her vision and effort. The awards have been presented since 1983.
