Montana Athletes in Service

Each year Montana Campus Compact recognizes one student-athlete from each MTCC Affiliate Campus across the state who have dedicated their efforts to serving the community while also pursuing their college degrees and certificates while also participating in college sports. Following are the Montana Athletes in Service Awards for 2019. 

Fourteen students from across the state of Montana were honored with the MTCC Montana Athletes in Service Award for their outstanding community service. The award was presented to each on the field at the November 23, 2020 Brawl of the Wild Football Game in Bozeman by the MTCC Board and OCHE Commissioner Clay Christian.

For 26 years, Montana Campus Compact and its affiliate campuses have supported students, faculty and communities across Montana with programs that encourage and recognize community service. Montana Campus Compact and the State of Montana are proud to honor the following athletes whose extensive volunteer efforts have been of great benefit to their communities.
