Sarah Tourtellotte of the Communications Media Department was honored on April 28, 2010, with the Volunteer Service Award for performing exemplary service learning projects during the 2009–2010 academic year.
This recognition of her outstanding service to the community is due, in large part, to the practicum students who have worked with her in the past. Each semester, Tourtellotte’s practicum students do a great deal of work for the Indiana County Humane Society in the fields of marketing and public relations. Her students this semester made informational packets and even hosted a Dance-A-Thon at IUP in order to raise money for the organization.
The Communications Department is extremely proud of the contributions Tourtellotte has made to the community.
