Christina Galardi awarded top University honors: Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award

The University of South Carolina presented one of its top honors, the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, to senior public relations major Christina Galardi during the university’s annual Awards Day ceremony on the historic Horseshoe Thursday (April 19, 2012).

Sullivan awards are given each year to one graduating woman and one graduating man for outstanding achievements, campus leadership, exemplary character and service to the community. The award, given at 15 colleges and universities across the country, is named for the 19th-century New York lawyer and philanthropist. Galardi is a graduate of Lexington (S.C.) High School and a student in the South Carolina Honors College. She is a Carolina Scholar, president of the Carolina Service Council, the 2011 Homecoming Queen and was recently named USC’s 2012 Woman of the Year and the J-school's Outstanding Senior in Public Relations.

Galardi said her proudest accomplishments at USC were community service activities, including organizing the Martin Luther King Day of Service and starting Beautiful Lengths, a hair-cutting ceremony in which 43 USC students, faculty and staff members cut their hair and donated it to an organization that provides free wigs for cancer patients.

“It’s such an honor to be recognized with this award because it’s from across all areas of the university,” Galardi said of the Sullivan award. “It’s something I will definitely treasure and will inspire me to continue to be a great representative of USC even when I’m not here anymore.”

Galardi will graduate in May with a bachelor’s degree in public relations from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. She has received a Fulbright scholarship to work as an English teaching assistant in Korea. When she returns, she will enroll in the master of public health program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, preparing for a career in health communications.
