Rachel Park '13 '14 (ceramics, M.A. in Teaching) has been selected as the 2012 recipient of the Regina Lightfoot Student Service Award, one of the highest statewide service honors given to one student each year by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC).
Named after the MHEC's former director of academic affairs who passed in 2007, the award is presented to students who are recognized for his or her outstanding service within his or her school and community.
Park has been involved in several MICA programs, including the Community Arts Partnership and Student Voice Association. She has also exemplified academic achievement at MICA within the Ceramics Department and M.A. in Teaching program.
Park works with the Arc of Baltimore where she offers free art classes to adults with developmental disabilities. As a result, MICA was able to build a partnership with the Arc of Baltimore, allowing the disadvantaged to take art lessons and interact with other students at the College.
In addition to the Regina Lightfoot Student Service Award, Park was recently announced as one of this year's France-Merrick Fellows, an award given for exemplary service within the community.
