Katie Flowers, assistant director of public services, received the first Dorinne Maxwell Memorial Citizenship Prize at the 42nd annual Block H Awards Banquet on Monday, April 30.
The Statesmen Athletic Association and the Hobart College Athletics Department honored top student-athletes for the 2006-07 year at that dinner. The Dorinne Maxwell Memorial Citizenship Prize is presented annually to a student, member of the staff or faculty, or to a friend of the College whose service mirrors the ideals of Maxwell, and whose helping hand has enriched the lives of others.
Flowers is active in the Geneva community, serving on the board of the Family Counseling Service of the Finger Lakes, the Seneca County Literacy Committee, and the Geneva Public Library Program Selection committee. She also coaches in the Geneva Family YMCA youth lacrosse program and is a volunteer assistant coach for the William Smith Field Hockey team.
At the Colleges, she recruits tutors for the America Reads, America Counts, and Jump Start Geneva programs. Flowers has also led alternative spring break trips to rural North Carolina, where HWS students have tutored grade school children.
