UNI student named 2015 Newman Civic Fellow

Posted: Updated:

The Newman Civic Fellows Award "honors inspiring college student leaders who have demonstrated their investment in finding solutions to the challenges that face our communities throughout the country." Michael Caraway, a junior at the University of Northern Iowa, was among the students to receive this honor.

Michael was selected for his work with the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Cedar Valley; he connected students with community members to bring the first Start-Up Weekend to Cedar Falls.

He's also the president of UNI Entrepreneurs, co-founder of Monday Creations, a member of the College of Business President Council, among his many other accomplishments.

Michael says "I have no intentions of stopping this movement and look forward to continuing it."
