Markkula Prize

Wednesday, Jun. 20, 2012

Graduating SCU senior Melissa Marie Martin was awarded the University's Markkula Prize at a ceremony last week at the Ethics Center. 

The prize, established by the Ethics Center Advisory Board in honor of the Center's first board chair, A.C. "Mike" Markkula, honors a student who has done outstanding work in applied ethics.

Martin worked closely with the Center's Character Education Program, assisting at Ethics Camp, the Principal's Institute, and other events.  She rebuilt the Character Educatn Web site, reviewing and formatting all lesson plans.

At the ceremony, Center Executive Director Kirk Hanson said, "Melissa will be especially remembered for exhibiting the SCU qualities of caring, compassion, and conscience."
