Wisconsin Campus Compact annually gives out awards to recognize those who have shown excellence in civic engagement. Winners of Wisconsin and national awards were honored at the annual WiCC Civic Engagement Institute, March 8-9, 2018 at UW-Whitewater.
Moraine Park is very proud to announce our 2018-19 Newman Civic Fellow, Queenie Weesen!
Queenie says, “Becoming a Nurse, I want to give elderly and hospice patients, quality care, kindness and compassion. I teach my children, education and helping your community is essential for success. As a child, I sometimes escaped to the roof of my grandma’s house, watching the airport planes flying overheard and told myself, ‘One day I will fly! In America you can fly!’”
The Jack Keating Student Civic Leadership Award recognizes students that have taken a leadership role in creating change in their community. Honorees expand their educational experience outside the bounds of their campus, while demonstrating measurable community impact. The purpose of this award is to honor students who work towards fulfilling the civic mission of their institution and Wisconsin Campus Compact.
