Senior student Elizabeth Moss, has been awarded the “Mayor’s Award for Civic Engagement” at Columbia College Chicago. The newly established award honors a senior student who has embodied Columbia College’s mission to serve an important civic purpose through active engagement in the life, and culture of the City of Chicago.
The award, which includes a $500 cash gift, was created by a donation from Columbia College Board of Trustees Chair Allen M. Turner. “We are fortunate to have an incredibly active and engaged student body, and this award is one way we can honor outstanding students who bring our mission to life and encourage other students to do the same,” said Turner.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Louise Love, presented the award to Elizabeth on April 24, 2013 at City Hall.
Elizabeth, an illustration major, has been an active member in the Chicago community as an Instructor, for several STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) related after school programs such as the Scientists for Tomorrow. She has been an outstanding instructor, teaching at two community centers for the past year.
