Jennings Earns Service Learning Volunteer of the Year Award

Linda Jennings

The Office of Service Learning honored Dr. Linda Jennings, Music Department faculty member, with the 2010–2011 Volunteer of the Year Award.

Jennings was honored as a result of her service beyond the requirements of being a member of the faculty. She has created music programs in Haiti, and, following the recent earthquake, she organized a benefit concert on campus and brought in a Haitian music educator to work with students. The concert raised $500 for Haiti earthquake relief.

Jennings also has worked for the past four years on the IUP String Project, a string-music educational outreach program. Through this project, student volunteers give string-instrument instruction to children ages four through eighteen in the community.
