Ben Weinberg, a Senior Psychology B.S. major, was selected for the 2021 Donald T. Lysle Service Award.
The Donald T. Lysle Award recognizes an undergraduate student majoring in either psychology or neuroscience who has made exemplary service contributions. This award honors Dr. Donald Lysle who has served as Chair since 2007. Dr. Lysle completed his B.S., Magna Cum Laude; M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh and has been a faculty member at Carolina since 1990. Aside from his great service as Chair of a large department for several terms, he is known, in particular, for his compassion and service for others.
Ben was chosen in recognition of his dedication of service to so many meaningful organizations, particularly in including developing programs for campers with developmental disabilities, helping to secure resources and build financial stability for those experiencing homelessness and unemployment, sharing music with non-profit organizations through UNC Achordants and particularly his efforts to share music, food, and mental resources with Israel. Ben will be honored at the 2021 Chancellor’s Awards Ceremony, the only campus-wide recognition program at UNC. His award will be presented by Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz during the ceremony, which serves to acknowledge student excellence and achievements in academia, student life, governance, and many other areas. The 2021 Chancellor’s Awards Ceremony will be held virtually the week of April 19, 2021.
