Congratulations Jeanne Vince!

At the 2013 UT Leadership Awards Night, held on April 16, 2013, Macdonald-Kelce librarian, Jeanne Vince, received the Peace Volunteer Center’s Joyce D. Keller Volunteer Award for 2012-2013. This award is given to a staff or faculty member at the University of Tampa who has done the most to promote community service or has personally volunteered in the community or assisted PEACE in some way. Jeanne has inspired her fellow staff members with her involvement in various charities throughout the year including the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Each year approximately 6,500 needy children in Hillsborough County receive Christmas gifts through this program. Jeanne “adopts” three boys each year. Jeanne exemplifies what giving back to your community really means. Congratulations Jeanne!

  1. This was an honor to receive an award. Elizabeth nominated me, a very engaged volunteer herself and former recipient of this award. Marlyn has been wonderful to allow us room to organize the presents for the Graham Home at Christmas. Fortunately, it’s very quiet at the Ref Desk and many interested students inquire about the project. Giving support to someone in need can indeed open up the way to just the right encouragement a person needs to succeed.
