Lyndon State College senior, Nick Russo, has been selected as LSC’s recipient of the Vermont Campus Compact’s 2013 Engaged Student Award. This award is given to a student or student group at a VCC member campus who demonstrates a significant investment of time and energy into activities that promote and support engagement at their institution and among their peers. Russo, a Television Studies major, is the student representative on the Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees and chairs the VSC Student Association.

The Norwell, Massachusetts, native will be honored for his work and accomplishments at the VCC Engaged Campus Forum on April 12 in Burlington, Vermont. The forum will highlight the efforts and impact of Vermont students and institutions of higher education on improving the lives of Vermonters and citizens worldwide.

Vermont Campus Compact is a statewide consortium of 16 college and university presidents committed to creating a flourishing democracy. They work with members to strengthen communities and educate for informed and active citizenship. VCC presidents believe that through sustained and creative student, faculty and institutional engagement with communities, higher education can help prepare tomorrow’s civic and social leaders while strengthening communities and improving lives in Vermont and elsewhere.
