Nominations sought for 2013 MLK Student Servant-Leadership Award

September 03, 2012

Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, executive director of ASU Gammage and ASU MLK Jr. Committee Chair, is soliciting nominations for the 2013 ASU MLK Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award. This year’s theme is Preserve & Transcend.

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will be presenting a Servant-Leadership Award to an ASU student at the MLK Breakfast on Jan. 23, 2013 at the Polytechnic campus.

Servant-leadership is a practical philosophy, which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening and the ethical use of power and empowerment.

We are requesting your help in identifying a student servant-leadership awardee. The student must be currently enrolled full-time, exemplify the ideals of servant-leadership and have a track record of commitment through volunteer service. Candidates may submit his or her resume with this form. Letters of recommendation are acceptable, but no more than two. Self-nominations are encouraged.

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will provide a $1,000 scholarship to the awardee to be used towards his or her educational costs. This scholarship is available to ASU full-time undergraduate or graduate students.

All applications will be reviewed and then the top three candidates selected will have 30-minute interviews with the committee. Finalists will be contacted for their interview.

Please submit this recommendation by close of business on Oct. 1, through campus mail to Michelle Johnson at MC 0205, fax 480/965-7663 or e-mail
