Jonathon Holland, Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington

Jonathon Holland, a second year at Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington, wants to share his passion for art and creative writing. Jonathon has done extensive work with at-risk populations, including people struggling with addition recovery and re-entry after incarceration. He has taught weekly writing workshops at the Recovery Engagement Center and tutors at Amethyst House, a halfway house for those in addiction recovery. He creates and implements arts and writing programming for at-risk youth in transitional housing. In addition, Jonathon is an exceptional student, and will take his passion for writing and art wherever he goes.

Thanks to Campus Compact for all that you have done over the years to nurture the campus service and service-learning movement. When we started at St. A's 15 years ago there was a feeling among some campuses that we were seeing higher education's latest 'flash in the pan.' Instead it was the beginning of a revolution of ideas and relationships, and you guys have been fueling us all the way."
