Community Partner Award
Amanda. Austin, Shakshi, Brandi and Olivia

The students who have partnered with The Ursuline Sisters  were thoughtful, inquisitive, respectful, hard-working, energetic and bright. They interacted with the populations we serve – impoverished, immigrant, ill, old, young – with a kindness of spirit and a depth of soul seldom seen in students so young.  How fortunate and blessed we are working with these students and  with Ann and Amanda!

  1. For three years now, I have had the pleasure of getting to know a phenomenal group of women.

    The Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown and the Ursuline Associates, have become valuable community partners of Kent State and dear friends.

    The Nuns have opened their Motherhouse annually and allowed students to stay there while completing the Alternative Spring Break experience in Youngstown.

    The Nuns and other Ursuline Associates have formed the Young Adult Outreach Program to engage young adults in service through their ministries, including offering summer internship opportunities to our students.

    The Sisters’ ministries include prison ministry, HIV/AIDS outreach, tutoring services, and health and wellness activities for the elderly.

    The students and staff who haveconnected with the Ursulines have LOVED each and every minute. Your self-sacrifice and passion for serving others is infectious.


  2. For the last three years, our nonprofit has been a partner with Kent State University’s Experiential Learning program thanks to Ann and Amanda. They talked us through developing a program, and every year, but especially for our 2015 ASB (March 23-25), we have greatly appreciated their dedication and assistance in working with us to offer the program for Kent State students.

    We are undergoing a major construction project and thought we’d have to cancel our KSU Alternative Spring Break this year. Ann especially helped us work through this by suggesting alternatives to housing. We are so glad she did.

    Amanda did a great job at recruiting and organizing this group.

    You are truly fortunate to have Ann and Amanda on your staff, and we are very fortunate to work with these fine women.

  3. What a wonderful group of young aduts!

  4. A wonderful honor for all of us!
