2010 Organization of the Year:
Members of the Armenian Student Association have supported the CPD through cleaning up the Bear River Activity and Skills Center grounds, pitching in at a fundraiser and building raised garden beds, again at BRASC.
Though the CPD's annual awards are given to people from all over the community, two of them went to USU students this year.They earned their recognition with hard work.
"Undergraduate students are among the most energetic, positive, and self-motivated people on the USU Campus." said CPD Director Bryce Fifield. "During the past year, we have been pleased to work with the Armenian Student Association and with undergraduate volunteers who have provided many hours of service to the people we work with. This was not some class assignment. These students contacted us on their own and it has been delightful to work with them. "
