GRCC has received word that Melanie Schiele-Gady in the Wellness Department has received the Michigan Campus Compact Faculty/Staff Community Service Learning Award! This award is given every two years to an individual who makes the most outstanding contribution to service learning and community service.
Melanie incorporates service learning into her wellness classes by having students work with Grand Rapids elementary schools to generate a curriculum promoting healthy living. Melanie’s program came in second in the 2013 Armen Awards competition and you can see a video about her program here.
Congratulations to Melanie on this great achievement!
