President's Undergraduate Humanitarian of the Year
Jillian Volpe, a Spring 2005 graduate of the College of Communications, was named the 2005 FSU President's Undergraduate Humanitarian of the Year. The award is given to a student who exhibits a tremendous commitment to service. Jillian's many service projects included work with the Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO) in Tallahassee and Camp Boggy Creek, a camp for chronically ill children in Eustis, Florida. She also served as a service coordinator and resident minister for Christian Campus Fellowship.
Jillian was recruited to FSU through the university's Service Scholar Program, which selects incoming freshmen with a distinguished record of community involvement in high school. Twelve incoming freshmen are selected for the Service Scholar Program each year. Service Scholars are given opportunities to meet leaders in the social service communities both on- and off-campus and often assume leadership roles in these communities themselves. Jillian served as Secretary of the Service Scholar Program during her last two years at FSU.
Jillian graduated with a GPA of 3.87 and earned a place either on the Dean's List or President's List during all but one of her semesters at FSU. She is a graduate of Lake Region High School in Eagle Lake, Florida.
