Three University of Michigan-Flint students received awards for their dedication and commitment to community service during the 16th annual Outstanding Student Service Awards Celebration sponsored by the Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC).
Each year, MiCC honors students from member colleges and universities across the state for their outstanding commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Three types of awards are given: the Outstanding Community Impact Award, the Commitment to Service Award, and the Heart and Soul Award.
UM-Flint student JaNel L. Jamerson received the Commitment to Service Award. This award recognizes up to two students per member campus in the state of Michigan for either their breadth or the depth of community involvement or service experiences.
UM-Flint students Omotolani Alli and Mario D. Johnson received the Heart and Soul Award. This award is given to students to recognize their time, effort, and personal commitment to their communities through service.
MiCC honored the recipients on April 14, 2012, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center in East Lansing.

MiCC promotes the education and commitment of Michigan college students to be civically engaged citizens through creating and expanding academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement.
