Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, Executive Director of ASU Gammage and ASU MLK Jr. Committee Chair, is soliciting nominations for the 2012 ASU MLK Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award. This year’s theme is REFLECT AND ACT. The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will be presenting a Servant-Leadership Award to an ASU student at the MLK Breakfast on January 23, 2012.
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.
The committee requests 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 resumes with the nomination 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 full-time ASU students (undergraduate or graduate).
Please submit nominations by close of business on October 3, 2011 through campus mail to Michelle Johnson at MC 0205, fax 480/965-7663 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Download the nomination form at www.asu.edu/mlk , click on AWARDS .
All applications will be reviewed and then the top three candidates selected will have 30-minute interviews scheduled with the committee. Finalists will be contacted for their interview.
