College of Engineering and Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering graduate Lizabeth Breaux, of Plano, Texas. earned 10 service-learning credit hours and volunteered 75.5 hours across her local and global communities. Some of Breaux’s volunteer opportunities include creating paintings to decorate patients’ rooms at Life Source Hospice, reading to students at Delmont Elementary, and volunteering in Dr. Jung's Regenerative Medicine Lab at LSU.

“The enriched service-learning curriculum in biological engineering coupled with the range of service opportunities Lizabeth Breaux engaged in during her time in ECP will prepare her really well for any career step she takes next,” said CCELL Director Dr. Sarah Becker. "We are very proud of her and confident that she will continue serving her community.”

CCELL and LSU Campus Life established the Engaged Citizen Program to support and recognize the accomplishments of undergraduate students who engage significantly with their communities to address critical community needs. Any undergraduate student can apply to be a part of the program.

“We are extremely proud of the service students continue to offer through this program,” said Associate Dean of Students and Director of LSU Campus Life Jacob Brumfield. “ECP graduates such as Lizabeth have stretched themselves as leaders. They support our community selflessly with classroom and research-based resources. Our communities and our state’s fortunes are brighter because of their leadership and service.”

To earn this distinction, the students must meet the high standards of the Engaged Citizen Program. Special requirements for this semester's cohort include completion of a minimum of seven credit hours of service-learning designated coursework, a minimum of 75 hours of community service with approved organizations, and a reflective paper detailing how the work fulfills LSU's commitment to community.
