Kevin Albert is proud of his latest medal.
“I was very surprised and truly honored to have been selected for the medallion,” he says.
This medal isn’t for his work to support victim service organizations. It isn’t for his military service either. Yet both of those played into him receiving his latest accolade.
Kevin is one of six O’Neill students to be awarded the William M. Plater Medallion for Civic Engagement. The honor is reserved for graduating students who have shown a deep and lasting commitment to making the world a better place by serving their communities.
“This award is definitely a highlight during my graduate career,” he says.
Kevin is working on his Master of Public Affairs degree and plans to complete that mission in May 2022 before heading out on another later this year.
