Wilson School of Commerce Building

The HPU SERVES Showcase is our chance to celebrate service as a vital part of an HPU education.  The Showcase is a night where HPU friends and High Point community members join together in a night filled with music, refreshments, awards, and testaments to the good work we have accomplished!

All HPU students and groups are invited to create a poster to share the service they have done over the past academic year at the HPU SERVES Showcase. For instructions on how to create a poster, click here: SERVES 2014 Showcase Poster Instructions.  All students or groups who intend to create a poster must notify Alex Nelson ( by March 24, and all students or groups who want their poster considered for an award must email a PDF file of the final poster to Alex Nelson by March 24th as well. All students or groups who create a poster should be prepared to come early to the Showcase to set up (4 PM), and they should have a two minute summary of their project prepared to tell people who come to view the poster.

Each year the SGA and SL Program work together to fund a number of awards. In 2013 we presented the following awards (for the full news story please click here):

1) The first two awards take into account the visual appeal, service accomplished, and the students’ reflections on the value of the service to the community and students’ lives.

  • Extraordinary Service Poster: English 4140: Community Writing with Dr. Kozma ($150)
