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.
