Kevin Shainline, Alvernia University
As the founding President of Alvernia’s coed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega (APO), Kevin Shainline has proven his superior organizational and leadership abilities. Since its founding APO has sponsored an impressive array of community activities, including educational events at local elementary schools, environmental remediation events at public parks, and holiday activities at a local assisted living convent for elderly members of the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters. In addition to his work with APO, Mr. Shainline has served as a student leader for the Alternative Break Program, has participated in Interfaith Youth Core events and conferences, has led Mission trips with the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters, and has participated in every single one of Alvernia’s four annual university-wide Days of Service since his freshman year. He is an employee of the Holleran Center for Community Engagement at Alvernia, working primarily with the South Reading Youth Initiative and Ready.Set.READ! programs, where he is universally acknowledged as a student mentor and leader. In what remains of his time, Mr. Shainline serves as a Resident Assistant for first year students, and a member of Delta Epsilon Sigma and Psi Chi (the Psychology Honor Society). The breadth of his involvement and positive impact is impressive indeed.
