On March 19th Campus Compact announced the 2013 Newman Civic Fellows. Congratulations to the six inspiring student leaders from North Carolina who are being recognized for demonstrating an investment in finding solutions for the challenges facing communities! They join 174 students from throughout the nation who were recommended by college and university presidents to acknowledge motivation and ability in public leadership. These students represent the next generation of public problem solvers and civic leaders. They serve as national examples of the role that higher education can—and does—play in building a better world.
Newman Civic Fellows awards are made in memory of Frank Newman, who dedicated his life to creating systemic change through education reform. Frank Newman’s leadership was selfless, optimistic, and determined, spanning an incredible career of more than five decades. At the core of Dr. Newman’s leadership was a belief in the power of individuals to make a difference and in the power of connection with others. The Newman Civic Fellows are reflections and affirmations of his life’s work. Learn more about Frank Newman here.
