Endearing Spirit (Administration, Faculty, Staff, Student, Community, and Alumni)
This award is selected by the Committee. Endearing spirit is one that is selfless. This happens when you think less about yourself, and more about others. You're generous and kind. Being an Endearing Spirit is similar to being altruistic — another word for giving to others without looking for personal gain. This person gives time, money, or things to other people without expecting anything in return. The Enduring Spirit Award recognizes the lifetime achievements of the recipient through their commitment of time, energy, and the giving of themselves to ensure the success of others. The issues they champion are varied and include: education, youth and family, holistical health (mind, body, and spirit), continuation and retention of culture, and economic empowerment to name a few.
