College seeks Campus-Community Award nominees

Grove City College is seeking nominations for the 33rd annual Florence E. MacKenzie Campus-Community Awards to be presented in November. 


Two awards are given each year – one to a Grove City College employee or current student and one to a resident or representative of the greater Grove City area. The College wants to recognize individuals who have strengthened “town-gown” relationships by promoting positive connections between the College and the community.

The criteria are:

  • Community Award – The nominee for the community award must be a local individual who has demonstrated or cultivated positive relationships between Grove City College and one or more community groups and brought them closer together. 
  • Campus Award – The nominee for the campus award must be a College employee or current student who, through volunteer effort, works to benefit and grow affinities between the College and one or more organizations in the Grove City area. 

The deadline for nominations is Sept. 30, 2015.

The award is named for Florence E. MacKenzie, wife of former Grove City College President Dr. Charles S. MacKenzie. Her efforts and involvement included serving as president of Grove City Woman’s Club, the Women’s Bowling League, secretary of the local United Way and president of the Grove City Hospital Board of Trustees, today known as the Grove City Medical Center. The awards have been presented since 1983. 

To nominate a qualified individual deserving of a Campus-Community Award, visit, or contact Charlene Shaw, associate director of alumni programs and events, at Letters will also be accepted; please mail to Charlene Shaw, Alumni Office, 100 Campus Drive, Grove City, Pa. 16127.
