 Founders Footsteps Award  Nominee

 

This award seeks to honor an exemplary student who is devoted to philanthropic efforts, in particular, raising funds or donations for a charitable purpose. Creighton's founders, Edward C. and Mary Lucretia Creighton and John A. and Sarah Emily Wareham Creighton, were philanthropists. This award pays tribute to their legacy by recognizing a student who impacts our community in a positive way through her/his philanthropic efforts. This award is new to the CSU Founders Week Award reception and is co-presented by CSU and the Student Philanthropy Committee.
