Founder of “A Round of Applause”

“A Round of Applause” actually began in the classroom at Elon University. Professor Gary Palin assigned his students in Entrepreneurship Skills the task of creating a project with a social initiative that will add value. Emma Price came up with the idea of recognizing the staff at Elon who otherwise go unnoticed. She realized that while professors and admissions staff (for example) are recognized often for the work they do, janitorial and food services staff rarely even get a “Thank You”.

SEED saw this project as an awesome idea and something worth continuing here at Elon so it will now be an annual event here on campus thanks to Emma!
