Lucy Guernsey Service Award Honors Student Volunteers

The Lucy Guernsey Service Award is given in honor of Lucy Guernsey, the Caltech Y Executive Director from 1989-1991 in recognition of her leadership, dedication to students, and diligence to furthering the Y’s commitment to volunteerism. The selection criteria for the award includes exceptional service to the Caltech Y and the community, involvement with on- and off-campus service projects, as well as leadership in community and volunteer service efforts.

This year, the Caltech Y selected three graduate students as the Lucy Guernsey Service Award recipients: Amy McCarthy, Michael Anaya, and Zoila Jurado Quiroga. All three of them are Rise Program tutors, have served on the Rise Advisory Committee, and care deeply about serving their community.
