FVCC Student Honored with Montana Athletes in Service Award

Montana Campus Compact has honored FVCC student Jacob Steinle with the Montana Athletes in Service Award. Every year Montana Campus Compact honors civically engaged student-athletes from around the state who have made significant contributions as volunteers in their communities.

Steinle is pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree in Natural Resources Conservation and Management at FVCC. He is a member of FVCC’s logger sports team and was nominated for the award by head coach Anne Beall.

“Jacob understands the responsibility of volunteering for his community and is an excellent example of exactly what a student athlete should be,” Beall said. “I am proud to know Jacob and to have him represent our team and college as a Montana Athletes in Service Award winner.”

In addition to attending college full-time, Steinle has made community service part of his weekly routine. He has volunteered for several local nonprofit organizations, including Flathead Food Bank, Orphans Lifeline, and Immanuel Lutheran Assisted Living. At FVCC, he is vice president of FVCC’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter.

“Volunteering is part of who I am because it brings so much enjoyment to me knowing I’m helping someone in need,” Steinle said.
