Every year, a selection committee under the guidance of the Center for Mercy Service picks members of the Carlow University community as recipients for Carlow’s annual Spirit of Service award.

The continued efforts of our honorees, on this campus and beyond, remind us all to lend a hand when needed, strive for social justice and build momentum for meaningful change.
