New Concord, typically distributes 4,000 pounds of food per month to
those in need.

that leadership of exceptional quality and versatility in college
should be recognized, that representatives in all phases of college life
should cooperate in worthwhile endeavors and that outstanding students,
faculty and administration members should meet on a basis of mutual
interest, understanding, and helpfulness.
