Rich Haddad

Rich Haddad ’75 and his wife Shannon ’78 have generously established the Richard A. and Shannon W. Haddad Internship Award for Sociology majors because of their affection for the College and appreciation for the opportunities their education made possible.  As a Sociology student, Mr. Haddad was specifically impacted by a trip to study and spend time in a South Carolina juvenile detention center.  With this experience in mind, the award will be given to a College of Charleston student who is a declared Sociology major completing a for-credit internship with troubled or at-risk youth through the Sociology Internship Program or the Crime, Law and Society Program. The recipient must have a demonstrated interest in helping troubled youth through previous volunteer experience, activities, research, etc.; and/or an interest in pursuing a career working with troubled youth in the future.

The inaugural award will be presented at the Department’s Honors Reception on April 17th.  Stay tuned later this year for a profile on the first award recipient!
