Charles J. Ping Student Service Award

The Charles J. Ping Student Service Award was designed to recognize and honor undergraduate students for their outstanding leadership and contributions to community service or service-learning on their campus and within their community.  These students represent the next generation of civic leaders and problem solvers. The award is named in honor of Charles J. Ping, who served as President of Ohio University from 1975 – 1994.  An early supporter and Board Member of Ohio Campus Compact, Ping has been a tireless advocate for campus-community partnerships and increased opportunities for students to become active and engaged citizens.

This recognition is granted annually to undergraduates at Ohio Campus Compact member institutions.

Students nominated to be a 2015 Charles J. Ping Student Service Award winner compete with other nominees from across the state for a $250 Legacy Award mini grant, to be given to a nonprofit organization of the winner’s choice.  The Legacy Award mini grants are sponsored by Ohio Campus Compact and the **Seretta Saylor Legacy Award.

** The Seretta Saylor Legacy Award

Seretta was an inspirational and generous individual who understood the importance of education, communication and community.  The Seretta Saylor Legacy Award seeks to recognize those compassionate and generous individuals, and related projects, that systemically address economic, emotional and environmental needs in a community. 1.) Awardees should be able to communicate the scope and impact of their projects.  2.) Awardees should be able to convey why they are emotionally connected to their project.  3.) Awardees should be able to demonstrate that their service has started a movement, meaning that their service has inspired others to get involved in their cause.
