Liberty University senior Kristin Lock received this year’s Christian/Community Service Volunteer of the Year Award for her outstanding contribution and commitment to service in Autism Speaks U (ASU). Lock started Liberty’s chapter of ASU, a program designed to support college students in their awareness, advocacy, and fundraising efforts for Autism Speaks. She has contributed more than 160 hours in Christian service this year, helping ASU raise more than $13,000 through various fundraisers. Lock’s interest in autism awareness sparked as she worked with an autistic individual for three years. She has channeled that passion by working with ASU and studying Special Education at Liberty.
“I was really impacted by the way people with autism interacted with people — how they were different, but they weren’t less,” Lock said.
Dr. Deanna Keith, the faculty sponsor for ASU, said Lock has gone above and beyond in her service.
“In addition to Kristin's many accomplishments, I believe it is the essence of who Kristin is as a person that makes her such a phenomenal individual and so deserving of this honor. Kristin possesses such character and leadership that she will be an amazing representative of Liberty University,” Keith said.
The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented annually to a student who demonstrates excellence in Christian service and ministry. Students are nominated by their supervisors at the organizations where they volunteer.
