Noteworthy: Grayson has been selected to receive a 2013 Newman Civic Fellow Award. Given by Boston-based Campus Compact, a national coalition of college and university presidents, this year's awards recognize 181 college student leaders who worked to find solutions to problems in their communities.

Age: 27

Residence: Duquesne

Background: An Atlanta native, Grayson developed an interest in feeding the needy through his experience in the restaurant industry. A full-time student at Community College of Allegheny County, he prepares and serves meals for the homeless and supervises the campus Scouting for Food drive. Grayson created Fertile Ground, a project that supports urban food gardens.

Education: Associate degree in culinary arts from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta in 2006. Grayson will earn an Associate of Science degree in theater from CCAC in May. He hopes to attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall.

Quote: “(My suggestion for future CCAC students) is just to get involved and keep pressing forward … and to take every opportunity that is presented to them because you never know what doors will open for you.”
