In recognition of outstanding community service, Amisha Divadkar ’15 has earned the 2015 Faculty Service Award from the Stonehill College Communication Department.
An active member of the campus community during her time at Stonehill, Divadkar was as an ALANA-A Brothers and Sisters Leader for three semesters, serving as a resource and leader in addressing issues of diversity and social justice.
Divadkar volunteered at Health Imperatives, an organization in Brockton, Massachusetts, that is committed to reducing health disparities by engaging with community youths. She also worked at The Raymond School in Brockton as a math and writing tutor, coaching academically challenged students and helping them reach their potential and pass benchmarking exams.
“The communication major taught me theory that translates to skills in persuasion and marketability, which has become invaluable when representing myself at job interviews,” says Divadkar, who received four job offers before graduation. She intends to accept an offer to work in Washington, D.C., for a healthcare consulting firm.
