Madeline LeBlanc Receives LSU Engaged Citizens Distinction
May 24, 2018
Recent CC&E graduate and LSU Discover Scholar Award winner Madeline LeBlanc is one of 10 LSU students to win the inaugural LSU Engaged Citizens Distinction this spring. She was awarded on May 10, 2018, just one day before receiving her Bachelor of Science in Coastal Environmental Science along with the largest-ever graduating class at CC&E.
The Center for Community Engagement, Learning, and Leadership (CCELL), in conjunction with LSU Campus Life gives students the opportunity to add volunteer work to their LSU experience through the Engaged Citizen Program. Students were chosen for the Engaged Citizen Distinction based on their completion of a minimum of seven credit hours of coursework designated as service-learning by CCELL, a minimum of 100 hours of approved community service, and a reflective paper on the work they completed and how that work fulfills LSU’s commitment to community.
Congratulations to Madeline on a fantastic 2018!
