The Center for Community Engaged Learning would like to congratulate Nick Piner on his selection for the Campus Compact Newman Civic Fellowship Program. Piner is a senior triple-majoring in biology, physiology and neuroscience while also finding time to be a student leader with Alternative Spartan Breaks, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at Sparrow Hospital, and member of the MSU Tower Guard. In addition, he received the 2020 Spartan Volunteer Award with over 600 hours of service to the community.
The Newman Civic Fellowship is a yearlong program that is reserved for students that display the utmost dedication to community and work towards positive change at and around their institutions. MSU President Samuel Stanley Jr. nominated Piner for the fellowship, through which Campus Compact hopes to create a network of engaged student leaders across the nation. Fellows are provided with resources and trainings designed to help them develop strategies for social change.
