Chatfield College Student Receives Ursuline Service Award

February 29th, 2012

Brandy Balon, a student at Chatfield College in St. Martin, Ohio, has been awarded an Ursuline Educational Services 2011 Service Award for her outstanding service to the community.

Ursuline Educational Services fosters education based on the Gospel values and promotes the Ursuline mission in Ursuline-sponsored schools and educational settings.  The Student Service Recognition Program recognizes students from Ursuline schools that have demonstrated the core value of service.

Brandy was honored for her volunteer work as a member of Team Chandler, an organization that helps families, both financially and spiritually, with children fighting cancer or who have lost the battle with this disease.   Brandy secured the support of Chatfield's Student Government to hold an end-of-semester dance to benefit a 14-year-old girl suffering from Osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer.  The dance was held with a “prom-like” theme because it was feared that she might not make it to her own prom.

“Brandy's leadership has influenced the Chatfield College student community to support the work of Team Chandler by befriending those experiencing terminal illness and assisting the families in a variety of ways,” said Patricia Homan, OSU, Site Director at the St. Martin campus.  “The collaboration has been enriching for the entire Chatfield community.”

In addition to her volunteer work with Team Chandler, Brandy is secretary of the Chatfield College Student Government Association at the St. Martin campus.  She resides in Blanchester, Ohio.
