Travis Martay Brennan, a member of the Bowdoin College Class of ’04, was one of five Maine college students to receive the Maine Campus Compact’s 2003 Student Heart and Soul Award at a ceremony held April 9.

Brennan and his fellow honorees were selected on the basis of outstanding contributions in community service and service learning. The awards were given during a daylong showcase of civic engagement at the Maine State House Hall of Flags, Augusta.

Brennan, of Portland, was honored for his service as a member of Maine’s Juvenile Justice Advisory Group. He has also worked with former state Rep. Michael Quint to co-author legislation to establish a statewide Youth Advisory Council.

Maine Campus Compact (MCC) is a coalition of 19 college and university presidents established to encourage and support campus engagement in the community. Maine Campus Compact fosters service-learning partnerships that build on the strengths of communities and higher education institutions to address significant social and environmental problems.

MCC's Student Heart and Soul Award is presented annually to undergraduates who show evidence of a depth and breadth of service experience, who have shown leadership and an innovative approach to service, and who have achieved significant results through service.

Other 2003 student honorees were Stephanie Bisol, St. Joseph’s College; Caroline Coffey, Bates College; Jennifer Daicy, Maine College of Art; and Joey Werner, Unity College.
