The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Green Bay, a volunteer organization serving the greater Green Bay community, has awarded St. Norbert College its annual Frances McLoughlin Community Partner Award in recognition of the college's various volunteering and service-learning programs. The society presented the award to representatives of the college at its Community Partners Breakfast and awards ceremony on April 19.

The St. Vincent de Paul Society called attention to the volunteer efforts of the college's Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning. Specific programs that the society recognized include the Michels Hall service program, in which groups of sophomore and junior students live together in Michels Hall on the college campus and spend a year serving Green Bay community organizations such as the St. Vincent de Paul Society; the faculty-led service learning projects that are part of the coursework of various classes; and the annual Into the Streets event, in which first-year students spend a day volunteering in the greater Green Bay community as part of the First Year Experience program.

"The collaborative efforts we've received from St. Norbert College by way of the Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning have been above and beyond the call of duty," said Bill Gosse, executive director of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Green Bay, in a letter to college president Thomas Kunkel. "These efforts are greatly appreciated and do not go unnoticed."
