Undergraduate student Savanna Thomas

Savanna Thomas always knew she wanted to work with kids; she just wasn’t sure what form it would take. UNC Greensboro helped her find that niche, and in the fall, Thomas was officially recognized for her outstanding leadership and service.

Thomas was one of 18 students selected from statewide colleges and universities to receive the Community Impact Award from North Carolina Campus Compact, honoring one student leader at each school. The Charlotte native is a junior pursuing a degree in community and therapeutic recreation with a minor in American Sign Language.

“Summer camp is one of those experiences that’s so intentional about personal development, but it’s not accessible to certain populations.”
