Maddi Georgoff
Newman Civic Fellows Award
Georgoff garners national honor as student leader

When in March about 50 BGSU students chose to spend their spring break helping others across the country instead of going on holiday, the fact that those trips were available to them is largely due to senior Madison (Maddi) Georgoff. Georgoff is the founder of bGAB, the alternative break program that this year sponsored four trips with six community partners, the most yet for BGSU.

Georgoff has recently been named the winner of a 2015 Campus Compact Newman Civic Fellows Award, which recognizes students' "public involvement and . . . motivation to create lasting change." She joins a group of 201 student leaders from colleges nationwide in receiving the award, honoring leaders "who inspire not only other students, but also the entire campus and community."

It would be hard to imagine anyone who more embodies those attributes than Georgoff, who will graduate this May with a degree in sociology and a minor in American culture studies. As a Civic Action Leader with the Office of Service-Learning, she has found the avenue for putting her personal beliefs into action and created a legacy that will live on, touching numerous aspects of the University. The bGAB program is perhaps the crowning achievement among many during her time as a student.
