    The Leahy Community Health and Family Center hosted a Volunteer Appreciation Event on April 8, 2019, for all University of Scranton students who volunteer in the center. During the event, graduating seniors are celebrated for time and commitment to the center during the previous four years. Nine seniors received certificates of Outstanding Recognition for greater than 100 hours of service, seven seniors completing at least 50 hours received a certificate of Appreciation.

    The Leahy Center depends on volunteer students and community members to implement its mission. Each year seniors are given recognition of their commitment and years of service above what is expected during their college career. Leahy student volunteers represent majors from each college and include: neuroscience, biology, criminal justice, biochemistry/microbiology, occupational therapy, exercise science, nursing and international language/business. These students come from different backgrounds and cultures, contributing to the center's diverse environment.   

     Elizabeth Neilan ’20 is an OT major.
