Distinguished Community Service Awards
The Distinguished Community Service Awards recognize the hard work and commitment of STC’s community leaders. The three awards-Distinguished Chapter Service Award, Distinguished SIG Service Award, and Distinguished Service Award for Students-recognize an individual’s exemplary effort, energy, and dedication to their community and its activities.
