Wesleyan named to president’s community service honor roll

Wesleyan College was named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the college announced Thursday.

The honor is the highest recognition a college can receive with regards to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.

It marks the second year Wesleyan has made the honor roll with distinction, the only college in the state that can make that claim.

Wesleyan is one of 115 colleges recognized nationally, and one of four in Georgia. The school also made the honor rolls in 2006 and 2007.

Wesleyan students do much of their civic work through the Lane Center for Community Engagement and Service, working on projects that include Aunt Maggie’s Kitchen Table program, Lane Center Tutors and Servant Leaders, and WOW! Days for Macon.

More than two-thirds of Wesleyan’s students are engaged in community service activities.
