Senior Honored for Community Service
UNC Charlotte senior Jameka Parker has been recognized for outstanding leadership and service by North Carolina Campus Compact, a statewide network of colleges and universities committed to community engagement. Parker is a recipient of the Community Impact Student Award, which honors one student leader at each member school.
Parker, from Fayetteville, is one of 18 students across the state to receive the 2014 award, joining more than 200 college students honored by the organization since the award was first presented in 2006.
A pre-service teacher majoring in middle grades education with a civic minor in urban youth and communities, Parker said she believes deeply in service learning, both as a civic obligation and as meaningful pedagogy. As a part of a community engagement capstone, Parker started a girl’s dance troupe in a high poverty middle school with a curriculum focused on academic achievement, mentoring and self-esteem.
