Batavia's Raphael earns Community Service Award at Nazareth College


ROCHESTER -- Andrea Raphael of Batavia was honored with the Jessica Shackelton Maclay Partners for Serving Award at the recent Nazareth College President's Civic Engagement Awards.

Jessica Shackelton Maclay was a Nazareth graduate from the Social Work Department who, as an alumna, went on to serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA, and was one of the founding coordinators of Partners for Serving and co-founder of Homework Help (now known as Nazareth College Connection). Tragically, Jessica passed away in 2011. The "Jessica Shackelton Maclay Partners for Serving Award" was created to honor Jessica's life and community service legacy, and is awarded to one senior.

Nazareth College's academic strengths cross an unusually broad spectrum of 60 majors, including education, health and human services, management, the fine arts, music, theater, math and science, foreign languages, and the liberal arts. The coeducational, religiously independent, classic campus in a charming suburb of Rochester, N.Y. challenges and supports 2,000 undergrads and 800 graduate students. Nazareth is recognized nationally for its Fulbright global student scholars and commitment to civic engagement. Rigorous programs, an uncommon core, experiential learning, career skills, and a global focus prepare graduates for not just one job, but for their life's work.
