Warren Wilson student receives Community Impact Student Award

Chloe Stuber, a Warren Wilson senior from Savannah, Ga., has received North Carolina Campus Compact’s fifth Community Impact Student Award.

Stuber was one of 34 college students across the state who received the award for making significant, innovative contributions to their campus’ efforts to address local community needs.   Awardees also received a Volunteer Certificate of Appreciation from Gov. Beverly Perdue.

Stuber has been a member of Warren Wilson’s service crew and a Bonner Leader program since 2008. She has led service trips to various agencies, organized weekly trips to alternative school programs, engaged in multiple service-learning courses and participated in a semester-long, service-based study abroad program.

Stuber also co-led Heart of the Issue workshops on the topics of economic justice and food insecurity. These workshops combined direct service, educational site visits, policy work and advocacy to create an opportunity for students to increase their depth of understanding about a particular social or environmental issue.

The awards were presented at two N.C. Campus Compact Student Conferences that brought together more than 300 college students and guests representing 34 N. C. higher education institutions.  Stuber received her award from Lisa Keyne, the compact’s executive director, and Budd Berro, Piedmont Regional Director for the Office of the Governor, at Johnson C. Smith University.
