On May 14, 2010, Kirstin Logan, of Cape May Court House, N.J., was recognized with the President’s Award for Service at Seton Hill University’s Spring Honors Convocation.

“Twenty-three years ago, in the fall of 1987, the late Pope John Paul II visited the United States. At a special gathering of presidents of Catholic Universities, Pope John Paul II called on us to urge our students to lives of service to others,” said JoAnne Boyle, president of Seton Hill University. “Today, I want to recognize Kirstin Logan whose life is characterized by her generous concern for others. Kirstin has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to Seton Hill University, children, the elderly and the disadvantaged.”

Logan, a family and consumer science and education major, earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Seton Hill University on May 15, 2010.

While at Seton Hill University, Logan actively advocated for children through her volunteer work with the Children’s Institute in Pittsburgh, Pa. and Alabaster Productions of Greensburg, Pa.

Logan assisted the elderly by serving as a volunteer at Green Meadows Assisted Living in Latrobe, Pa.

She reached out to the disadvantaged through her participation in the food pantry and hunger awareness programs of the Westmoreland County Food Bank and Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank. Logan volunteered time to assist those in need through her annual work with the Labor of Love, a Seton Hill tradition of beginning the academic year with a day of community service that brings together new and returning students, faculty, and staff, to engage in the rich Seton Hill heritage and spirit of charity, and Take the Day On, a day when the Seton Hill community engages in community service projects at various project sites throughout Westmoreland County.

For three years, Logan participated in alternative spring break activities. She, with a group of students, staff, and faulty from Seton Hill University, participated in Habitat for Humanity projects in Pittsboro, N.C., Frakes, Ky. Americus, Ga.

While at Seton Hill, Logan was a Seton Hill University Student Ambassador, summer orientation assistant and member of the Student-body Activities Council, Make-A-Wish Club, Family and Consumer Science Club, and Education Club.

“Kirstin consistently lives her values and offers her leadership in service to others. We are pleased to recognize and honor her,” said Boyle.
