Senior Honored with Community Impact Student Award


HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 14, 2013 – High Point University senior Scott Skowronski is one of 19 college students in North Carolina to receive the 2013 Community Impact Student Award for his efforts to make a difference in the community.

Skowronski has implemented numerous service and fundraising efforts around High Point as the recent president of the Campus Civitan Club. One of his biggest achievements was the Civitan Homelessness Awareness Camp Out this past spring.

“The Camp Out was my favorite event,” says Skowronski. “We partnered with other organizations on campus and three community organizations, creating an event for both the school and community to be a part of.”

For the campout, HPU students, faculty, staff and community members camped out in 40 degree weather to help raise homelessness awareness. They also raised about $2,600 in cash and in-kind donations for Open Door Ministries and other partner agencies.

“Under Scott’s leadership, the Civitan Club has been honored with two top Civitan International awards for Campus Clubs as well as two top HPU awards for student groups,” says Dr. Daniel Hall, assistant professor of economics and Civitan Club advisor. “Scott has led by example with many strong qualities including enthusiasm, compassion, cooperation, and the ability to organize and delegate to students both within and outside our club to complete large service projects that have an extraordinary impact on the community in High Point and abroad.”

The award is given by the North Carolina Campus Compact, an association of colleges and universities committed to fostering campus-community engagement, to one student on each partner campus.
