Each year NDCL acknowledges outstanding service at each grade level with the Sister Jacquelyn Gusdane, SND, Service Award, which is based primarily on outstanding service as reported in the Inspiration Reflection and reviewed by peers and faculty members.
Commencement Service Cord
Beginning with the Class of 2019, outstanding service will be recognized with a special cord to be worn at commencement. Students completing the minimum 20 hours of service in the respective categories per grade level as well as above & beyond hours totaling at least 20 additional hours in each of their four years meet the initial eligibility requirements for the cord (a total of 160 hours over the four years). Additional criteria for selection will include variety in service, involvement with Campus Ministry programs and projects, and excellent efforts on the Inspiration Reflection. Students striving for the service cord are strongly encouraged to consider participation in an NDCL-sponsored summer mission trip. Click here to learn more about the summer mission trips.
