-The Award was created in Spring of 2012 by former President Nitish Sharma. Nitish oversaw the AFSA daily operations during the 2011-2012 academic year and noticed the need to better reward and recognize those making positive contributions to his/her academic community. The AFSA Community Leadership Award was thus founded that year and first awarded during the Spring 2012 term and handed out at the Fall 2012 SAF Awards Night.-
