Three members of the SVP Society have been awarded with the Presidents Civic award for all their hard work and efforts within the SVP Society. The members have been working on numerous fundraising events such as the Fashion show which they were held for the last few years which has been a great success. These students organise and volunteer their time with SVP while still studying and attending college. The dedication is bestowed to them and more of a reason why they were awarded the Presidents Civic Award. Students who submit their work will be awarded an ITT President’s Civic Spirit citation. An award will be bestowed on the three candidates who display the most outstanding volunteering experience and impact as adjudged by the award selection panel.
