The Bloomfield College Center for Student Leadership and Engagement (CSLE) honored students and organizations that made a difference through volunteer efforts on April 15, as the division held its annual Community Service Recognition Breakfast in the institution’s Student Center.

“Today is a celebration to honor students, agencies and alumni for their dedication and leadership in helping others,” Coordinator for Service Learning and Diversity Initiatives Nereida Montijo said of the festivities. “A day to honor those who give not to receive, but because they see a need; they believe they are agents of change. This is one of my favorite events of the year, and such a tremendous commitment to community service is what makes our institution so special.”

The morning began with students Kevin Burrus, Anthony Hagans, Reginald Innocent, Samuel Jean, Brenda Quinones, Sadiyyah Shakoor and Nicola Waldron receiving the Outstanding Community Service Award for their distinguished service. Several initiatives were also honored during the ceremony, with agencies including the Relief Bus Project and the Hyancinth Aids Foundation receiving recognition for their work at the institution.

Student organizations that have taken the lead in volunteer efforts were also highlighted, with Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. and the school’s Green Hearts chapter receiving accolades.

A total of 387 students participated in community service initiatives during the 2013-2014 academic year, nearly 20% of the school’s population. Over 4,400 total volunteer hours were performed during the year, with students lending a helping hand to 140 organizations such as the American Red Cross, Newark Now and New Jersey Peace Action over the course of the two semesters.

“I cannot express how proud I am of our students for the tremendous work they do in the community,” CSLE director Jennifer Troxell said.  “To see so many of them find causes they want to contribute to, and give so much of themselves in the process, is truly inspiring. Every student who has taken the initiative and made a difference should be very proud of the difference they have made.”
