2014 "Making a Difference" Service Award

LeAnn was awarded the 2014 “Making a Difference” Service Award for volunteer work and service as an undergrad student at UNC Pembroke. She has many accomplishments as an organization leader, student volunteer and service advocate on-campus and with the local community. She was instrumental in the organization of the Native American Student Movement on the UNCP campus. She volunteered during the Freshman Day of Service, Make-A-Difference Day, MLK Day of Service, Pembroke Housing Authority Thanksgiving dinner and the UNCP Hunger Banquet. She was a service advocate with her sorority, Alpha Pi Omega, and their work with Heart Bridge of the Carolinas summer camp.

LeAnn grew up around a family who believed in service and served their community. She was inspired as a child by her mother’s involvement in service. Her mother taught her to give back and help others get through their difficult times. While at UNCP, she encouraged and strived to be an example to other native students to become involved in service and give back. LeAnn is a rising leader and engaged citizen who is making a difference.  Her career goal is Higher Education.

 Why UNCP?

LeAnn came from a larger university prior to UNCP. Coming to UNCP was like coming home. She felt welcomed from the beginning. She loved the community that is UNCP and felt the embrace of support that faculty and staff offer to students. She was able to find her place and purpose through her many work and service experiences at UNCP.  Her student advising experience helped her decide to continue in a graduate program and pursue a career in higher education.
