The Center for Community Engagement in conjunction with the Writing Center at the Academic Success Center would like to recognize Sam Houston State University students who model the university's motto, "A Measure of a Life is its Service."

Measure of a Life Essay Contest

Each year, the Center for Community Engagement in conjunction with the Academic Success Center recognizes the accomplishments of SHSU students who embody the university's motto. We are looking for short personal narratives demonstrating the theme “The measure of a Life is its Service.” We want true stories of real SHSU students committed to extraordinary service and civic engagement. Essays may feature personal, first-hand experiences or may showcase service observed in others. We congratulate the following student winners:

First place, Ashley Gilbert

Second place, Evelin Castro
