April 15, 2008
President David E. Daniel honored 21 UT Dallas students, and faculty and staff members on Monday for contributing more than 4,600 hours of community service in 2007.

The University will host a reception in the McDermott Suite to honor the award recipients.
These volunteers tracked their service hours on a Web site created by President George W. Bush’s Council on Service and Civic Participation.
The volunteers tutored students of all ages, mentored children in need, assisted the homeless, worked with senior citizens, delivered prescriptions, taught life skills at a local camp, and volunteered with their churches, campus clubs, student government, and service groups.
Created in 2003, the President’s Volunteer Service Award is issued by President Bush’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize and encourage sustained volunteer service and to encourage volunteering as a central part in the lives of all Americans.
The council’s purpose is to promote an ethic of service and to recognize Americans who are giving back to their communities through acts of service.
