RHIC Receives 2014 Milch Award from Loyola University Maryland

Reservoir Hill Improvement Council (RHIC) is very proud to be chosen as the recipient of the 2014 Milch Award for Excellence of Accomplishment from Loyola University Maryland.

Erin Bowman, RHIC's School Organizer and Healthy Food Coordinator, received the award on behalf of RHIC at Loyola University's 2014 Commencement Exercises.  She was accompanied by RHIC Board Member Chartruse Robinson to a breakfast with university officials and the following commencement exercises.  Erin, herself a graduate of Loyola University, has been RHIC's lead staff in our partnership with Loyola University.  Reservoir Hill residents may well have seen Loyola University students in the community working on a wide range of projects.  Service learning programs at colleges and universities allow students to have historical and modern context for their coursework in urban studies, while providing valuable services to uor city neighborhoods. In  this case, Loyola students got connect their coursework in urban health and faith with real services in Reservoir Hill.
