Sullivan Showcase

Sullivan Showcase

Join us for our annual “Celebration of Service”.

Each year, we travel to a partner school region to host this gala in appreciation of our partner schools, faculty & staff and award recipients.

We partner with regional host schools to honor faculty and staff on their campuses, as well as present our life-time achievement award for a student award recipient, The Sullivan Luminary Award.

All past award recipients are invited to attend, along with partner school representatives and community partners. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required.

The Luminary Award celebrates the legacy of service leaders.

The Sullivan Award has long been one of the most prestigious student awards offered by our partner schools. Each year at the Sullivan Showcase, we honor one past Sullivan Award student recipient who has continued placing service above self throughout their lifetime.

Recognizing Faculty & Staff who are making an impact 

Recognizing Faculty & Staff who are making an impact 

Our Faculty & Staff play a critical role in the Sullivan network. The Faculty & Staff Engagement Award goes to one individual who has demonstrated extraordinary engagement in Sullivan programming over the years.

Additionally, we present Faculty & Staff Regional Service Awards to individuals who have been nominated by their school who are providing service above themselves on their campuses.

Reconnect with your Sullivan family and plug into the network.

We love getting to host our past award winners and Sullivan alumni throughout the year. At each event, you’ll be able to connect with other award recipients, event participants, and Sullivan board members.

Our reunions honor partner school milestones and take place in cities all across our network.

We are always looking for new ways to engage our award recipients in activities around regional cities. If you have volunteer opportunities where Sullivan award recipients can help, please submit them there so we can share with our network. 

Reconnect with your Sullivan family in the mountains outside Asheville, NC.

We are thrilled to host our past award winners and Sullivan alumni this fall!

Join us as the leaves are changing this Fall and network with other members of the Sullivan family, as well as our board members.

Meet our student Sullivan Fellows who are creating change.

During the cocktail reception beforehand, connect with some of our Sullivan Fellows as they network and build upon their changemaking efforts.

The fellowship is a chance for students from across the Sullivan network to work together and develop projects that make a real difference in their communities and the Showcase gives them an opportunity to connect with mentors to take the next step on their journey.
