Do you know a University of South Carolina student, faculty or staff member who has stood up to help a campus community member in a manner that had a significant impact on that person’s life? Nominate them for a Hero Award.
The annual Hero Awards recognize accountable bystanders—community members who stand up, take action and make a difference in the life of another. They are true heroes.
Hero Award recipients have helped friends, classmates, coworkers and even complete strangers through a variety of actions and deeds, large and small. They gave someone a ride, called for help, intervened in an unsafe situation, or referred someone to much needed resources. Our heroes pay attention to what is going on around them and the needs of others and stand up for them.
