UVI NSE Student Receives Community Engagement Award at ASU

The University of the Virgin Islands Student Selena Cuffy has been selected by the National Student Exchange (NSE) program for a Community Engagement Award for her academic accomplishments, social welfare service, contribution to the campus community, and creative use of time while on exchange. Cuffy’s award is one of the three awards under the NSE’s Student Achievement Awards.

The award which is officially titled Dr. Richard R. Bond Community Engagement Award, like the other NSE awards, is named after a former NSE consortium leader. As part of this award, Cuffy is awarded a $500 stipend. 

“Since I have been in this position, this is the first UVI student that I know of that received this award,” said Dahlia Stridiron-Felix, NSE coordinator at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Thomas Campus. “Ms. Cuffy is well-deserving of this award because she has embraced and taken advantage of the opportunities available through the NSE Program. She went on exchange with clear goals and I feel she has accomplished them.”

The now rising senior Psychology major who left the University of the Virgin Islands for Alabama State University for the Spring 2019 semester is lauded by the NSE program coordinators for her exemplary performance.
