Does your Organization Need Volunteers?
Medicine Wheel Award Nominations Open
True Blue Neighbors is now accepting applications for Medicine Wheel Award. Service can take many forms. For example, a long-term effort by one person to assist a community service agency, or a one-day event by a large group involving physical labor, or a brief act of kindness toward a person in need. Service does not have a single definition, but is probably best defined by the act itself. To highlight the importance of service, The University of Tulsa has established the Medicine Wheel Awards. These awards recognize those who have provided meritorious service to our community and/or its citizens. Each year, a faculty member, staff member, student, and organization/team can be named. To be eligible, individual nominees must be full-time, in their respective category. An organization is defined as a group of individuals bound together by formal association with one another. For example: a team comprising any combination of faculty, staff, and/or students from and academic department; a Greek, cultural, or campus ministry team or a residence hall, athletic, or honor society team. Nominations open on Feb 1 and close at 5pm on March 11th. Nominations are to be turned into Kathy Shelton in the True Blue Neighbors Office. To get an electronic nomination form, email Kathyfirstname.lastname@example.org.
