In supporting the public engagement activities of students, faculty and staff, the McKeen Center for the Common Good recognized the service and engagement efforts of several members of the Bowdoin and local community in an awards ceremony with President Mills on May 7, 2010.

(Back row, l. to r.) Brian Fry '10, Kat Flaherty '11, Jamie Nadeau '10, Jess Britt '10, Brunswick Housing Authority Director John Hodge, Rachel Turkel '11, President Mills, Shelby Davies '10, Topsham Fire Department volunteer and Bowdoin housekeeper Steve Lavoie.

The recipients represent the range of ways in which students, faculty and staff (as well as community partners) today work to apply their talents, passions and academic interests "for the benefit of society" as a manifestation of President Joseph McKeen's call in his inaugural address at the opening of the College more than 200 years ago.
