Org of the Year - Hoop House

Congratulations to the Hoop House for winning the Organization of the Year for 2023-24! The accomplishments they did over the year include:

  • Had an excellent group of 11 students and community members who volunteered to water and take care of the Hoop House over the summer which resulted in why their 2023 season was so successful
  • Had a consistent group of 15-20 people who attended meetings almost every week during the fall season who logged over 740 hours collectively throughout the summer and fall season
  • Harvested over 450 pounds of produce with over 170 pounds donated to the NMU Food Pantry and the rest donated to the volunteers as a "thank you" for their hard work
  • Planned three recipe workshops using their produce: kimchi, tomato sauce and jalapeno hot sauce
  • Visited four local farms
  • Increased their presence on campus
  • Spread more than 10 full wheelbarrows of compost on their indoor and outdoor beds throughout the season

NMU student Chase Jensen sums it up by saying, "The NMU Hoop House means community to me. There is a certain fulfillment I experience when I take ownership over the production of my own food, a feeling I can't quite find anywhere else. The very first Hoop House meeting that I attended at NMU is a memory I cherish greatly. I remember being welcomed into the community with open arms and immediately feeling comfortable with my peers...."

Recognizes an outstanding student group that has built a solid organization and has achieved success in accomplishing its goals.

Community Service Award - Northern Michigan Constructors

Congratulations to the Northern Michigan Constructors for winning the Community Service Award for 2023-24! 

So far during the 2023-24 school year, Northern Michigan Constructors (NMC) has completed seven different volunteer projects that have accumulated roughly 75 hours of service per person for a total of approximately 1,150 "man hours." 

One of the most impactful projects has been a fundraiser for the NMU Volleyball Team. NMC was given pieces from the old Vandament Arena volleyball floor, which they were able to cleanup and prepare for the volleyball team. Then, the volleyball team was invited to learn some of the processes and skills used by the NMC members and implement them to create beautiful 6" x 6" commemorative squares that they will be selling.

They also repurposed some of the glass from the old NMU hockey rink to use as table tops, to create a food-safe surface that is easily cleanable and will not stain for two new planting tables for the Indoor Agriculture Program.

Every project they complete is free of charge to the owner with the only expenses they pay for are the materials they purchase. NMC supplies the tools, labor, design assistance, and certain materials, if necessary. If you were to price that out to minimum wage ($10.33), they have saved their partners over $11,000 in just labor fees.

NMC is currently working on two more projects that will be completed by the end of the school year. One of them is the Carpenters & Millwrights Local 1510 Union to host the UP Construction Skills Challenge to give UP high schoolers the chance to showcase their skills and win a prize.

They pride themselves in the quality of work ensuring that their projects will have a long lifespan. If there is ever an issue with something they have worked on, they will fix it immediately.

Recognizes the organization that has demonstrated the highest degree of volunteer service contributions to the surrounding Upper Peninsula communities during the academic year. Factors such as quantity of participants and quality of project outcomes will be considered. The award can also be given to an organization that has done one outstanding project.

Balconi Community Service Scholarship - Marcus Chidester

Congratulations to Marcus Chidester who is the 2023-24 winner of the William and Josephine Balconi Community Service Scholarship. Marcus is a junior majoring in construction management. He epitomizes selflessness, commitment, and leadership.

His journey has been far from ordinary. Starting as an architecture student at Lawrence Technological University, Marcus enjoyed the promise of a bright future with an academic/football scholarship. However, a transformative summer internship with Barton Malow redirected his path towards construction management.

Despite financial hurdles and the daunting prospect of leaving behind his scholarship, Marcus boldly transferred to NMU determined to pursue his newfound calling.

As a Superior Edge/Volunteer Center Coordinator within the Center for Student Enrichment, Marcus tirelessly organizes campus events and volunteer opportunities, fostering a culture of service. His leadership extends to his role as vice president of Northern Michigan Constructors, where he spearheads community volunteer initiatives. 

He actively participates in the Student Leader Fellowship Program preparing for a 100+ hour community service internship.

His dedication, leadership, and compassion truly embody the spirit of this scholarship.

William Joseph Balconi and Josephine Agnes Butokovich were born and raised in the Houghton area. There was a strong sense of unity in the community and both learned the importance of helping people. They married during World War II before Bill shipped out to the Pacific in the Army. He was wounded during a landing, losing several fingers, and received a Purple Heart. Josephine did a stint as Rosie the Riveter building bombers at Willow Run near Detroit.

After the war, they stayed in the Detroit area to raise their family, but they always considered the Upper Peninsula their home. They both felt that helping those in need benefited both those being helped and those performing service. People committed to doing community service are often unsung heroes who work quietly and consistently trying to make the world a better place.

This annual community service award, in memory of Bill and Jo Balconi, is to be given to the NMU student who best represents these principles in thought, and most importantly, in action.

2023-24:  Marcus Chidester
2022-23:  Phoebe Martin
