Wisconsin Campus Compact has awarded their 2017 Jack Keating Student Civic Leadership Award to Alison Dikanovic, senior in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, who assisted in the creation of Youth Rise MKE, an online magazine that tells the stories of teens making a difference in Milwaukee.
WiCC is a coalition of college and university presidents and chancellors who are committed to strengthening civic engagement and service-learning partnerships between Wisconsin’s postsecondary institutions and the communities they serve.
The purpose of this award is to honor students who work towards fulfilling the civic mission of their institution and WiCC. This award recognizes students that have taken a leadership role in creating change in their community. Honorees will expand their educational experience outside of the bounds of their campus while demonstrating measurable community impact.
Awardees will be honored at the WiCC Awards Dinner on Thursday, April 6, at 6 p.m. at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay.
