Service Scholars

Dawn Small

What does a Service Scholar do?

Service Scholars are selected annually based on an application process. Once chosen, each scholar will receive a scholarship award. They must work six hours per week throughout the academic year and maintain a 2.5 grade point average and an evaluation will be done at the end of the student's term of service for the awarding of the scholarship for the following year. The student scholar works under the supervision of Lycoming's Community Service Director, Jeff LeCrone.

What are the responsibilities of a Service Scholar?

The service scholar must maintain a record of good citizenship and adequately fulfill the responsibilities of the Service Scholar position. He/she must participate in leadership development opportunities such as the freshman Leadership Education Advancement Project (L.E.A.P.), student leadership retreat, Pennsylvania Campus Compact workshops, conferences, and college paraprofessional groups. The service scholar must also participate in the Lycoming community service class. And he/she should assist with the coordination and administration of the Community Service Center and provide oversight for the development of community, volunteer, and service learning opportunities for Lycoming students.

Former Service Scholar

Being a service scholar has allowed me to develop a program that meets two causes. One, giving Lyco students the chance to teach the youth of Williamsport every Sunday morning at local churches, and second, giving the youth a chance to spend time with outstanding Lycoming College role models.
