The Corporation for National and Community Service honored
Wingate University as a leader for their support of volunteering,
service-learning and civic engagement.
Wingate was admitted to the 2010 President’s Higher
Education Community Service Honor Roll for engaging its students, faculty and
staff in meaningful service that achieves measurable results in the community.
This is the third year in a row the university has received this honor. Wingate
students logged more than 15,000 hours of community service and raised over
$14,000 in 2010. This year’s honor is based on several projects including volunteering
at Carolina Equine Rescue & Assistance, a horse rescue farm in Union
County. Students raised awareness about hunger and homelessness and took part
in spring break trips to other states.
