Massachusetts Service Alliance honors Heller School, Phyllis Segal

March 23, 2011

The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University and Phyllis Segal, Vice President of Civic Ventures and member of the Heller Board of Overseers, are among those being honored by the Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) in celebration of its 20th anniversary. The honors will be bestowed at a March 24th breakfast featuring keynote speakers Victoria Reggie Kennedy, attorney, advocate, and wife of the late Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and Patrick Corvington, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service.

According to MSA, the honorees were chosen for "elevating service in the Commonwealth." In announcing the honors, MSA called the Heller School "one of the country's leading institutions for advancing national and community service," citing in particular Heller's first of its kind AmeriCorps Scholarship. The scholarship was created with $1 million in funding to attract qualified AmeriCorps alums to Heller's MBA program in nonprofit management.

MSA cites Phyllis Segal as "a national leader for community service." Segal is a member of the Heller Board of Overseers and led the effort to create the Eli J. Segal Citizen Leadership Program at Brandeis. She was nominated to the board of the Corporation for National and Community Service by President Obama.

The Massachusetts Service Alliance, established in 1991, is a private, nonprofit organization that serves as the state commission on community service and volunteerism. Its mission is to catalyze the innovation and growth of service and volunteerism by creating partnerships that maximize resources, expertise, capacity, and impact.
