Thirteen students were honored on March 22 for their commitment to service.

On Wednesday, March 22 at the President’s Annual Humanitarian of the Year luncheon, 13 Florida State University students were recognized for their commitment to making the world a better place.

 

Among them, English Education student Brittany Sinitch, a senior from Coral Springs, was honored for her work with Dance Marathon, anti-bullying campaigns, and the FSU Council of Teachers of English.

Calling the students some of Florida State’s finest ambassadors, Provost Sally McRorie said the honorees exemplify the values cherished by the university: engagement, academic excellence and service to others.

English Education student Brittany Sinitch was named FSUCOE’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year.

“You saw a need, and you did something about it,”McRorie said. “You didn’t wait for somebody else to do it. You didn’t wait until you got older, until you got a job, you’re out in the world. You did it now. That’s very inspiring.”

The President’s Undergraduate Humanitarian of the Year Award recognizes students who exhibit tremendous commitment to service. Each school or college selects one student to be their Humanitarian of the Year. The students are then recognized at an awards luncheon hosted by FSU President Thrasher. They also receive $200 that is donated in their name to a nonprofit organization of their choice.

On April 11, t
he awardees will attend Leadership Awards Night, and the overall President’s Humanitarian of the Year Award will be named. That student will receive an additional $1,000 for his or her charity.
