Montana Tech Student Receives Montana Student Volunteer Award
Montana Tech Business & Information Technology student from Shelby, MT, Zach Torgerson received the award. Torgerson, a Campus Compact AmeriCorps service member, and Oredigger football player, serves over 300 hours a year with youth, assisting them with Science Club, reading skills, and even launching a suicide prevention program in Butte designed for 4th-grade students. His ability to connect with students and inspire his peers to serve has distinguished him as a service member and leader at his Montana Tech.
“Zach is the perfect student to represent Montana Tech in this cadre of scholars,” noted Amy Verlanic, Executive Director of the Institute for Educational Opportunities on the Montana Tech campus. “He gives selflessly of himself to the community and works hard to motivate his fellow students to join him. We are delighted Zach is being recognized by the Governor’s Office because he is incredibly deserving!”
Zach received the award at Montana Tech during halftime of the men’s basketball game on Saturday, December 7, 2019, in the HPER.
The Montana Student Volunteer Award, previously known as the Volunteer of the Game Award, is awarded in partnership between the Governor’s Office of Community Service and Montana Campus Compact campuses to college students across the state who have demonstrated service to their communities while pursuing a college degree or certificate.
“This incredible group of students is certainly deserving of our recognition as they take the time and commitment to be a force of good in their communities,” Governor Bullock said. “I commend these students for what is likely the start of a lifelong commitment to service and encourage others to follow their example.”
This year, 13 student volunteers across Montana will be recognized at a campus event or home sporting event and presented with a certificate signed by Governor Steve Bullock and their college president.
