Cal State LA’s biochemistry major Joyce Quon has volunteered more than 150 hours in the Maternity Unit of Huntington Hospital in Pasadena.

“I love connecting with new mothers on an emotional level and ensuring that their experiences are the best they can be,” Quon says. “It’s fulfilling to be part of a movement to give back to the community and make a difference for the people around you.”

A San Marino resident, Quon was featured in an I Serve LA video as part of a social media campaign encouraging the Cal State LA community to track their service hours.

I Serve LA is a Cal State LA service-learning initiative that provides thousands of student, faculty and staff volunteers who serve with community-based organizations across the Greater Los Angeles area.

Cal State LA recently received a Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Silver Award of Excellence in the social media category for its digital communication campaign promoting the university’s I Serve LA initiative.

Cal State LA also received silver awards in the social media category for its digital communication campaigns promoting the university’s Mind Matters initiative and in the invitations category for the design of its 2018 Alumni Awards Gala Invitation.

“These initiatives reflect key values of our University community,” said Cal State LA President William A. Covino. “I’m pleased to see CASE honoring our work to promote the importance of well-being and service.”

The awards were recently presented during a reception at the Connect West 2019, the CASE District VII Conference, in Anaheim, CA.
