Hey Everyone!

On Wednesday, May 26th, SVC hosted its 10th annual Service Recognition Ceremony. This event recognizes students, staff, and faculty that have completed exemplary community service during their time at UCSC. We annually award individual students, student organizations, Greek organizations, faculty and staff based on an application and letters of recommendation and/or a community member nomination.

This year’s Service Recognition Ceremony honored 40 individuals and one greek for their outstanding service efforts. The event was a huge success, with an inspiring speech from our key note speaker, Vice Chancellor Donna Murphy. Musical guests Stefan Orozco and Juliana Britto Schwartz also performed three amazing songs throughout the event. A number of volunteers showed up to receive their awards while sampling our delicious food spread with bagels, chocolate covered strawberries, and a number of baked goods all donated by local Santa Cruz businesses. The staff and interns did an excellent job in hosting this event, and we would like to give a special thanks to Donna Murphy, Franklin Williams, Barbara Silverthorne, Sheila Rodriguez, Stefan Orozco, and Juliana Schwartz for their meaningful contributions to this event!
