Jacksonville University’s TRiO Student Support Services program recognized its outstanding student participants and professional tutoring staff at the organization’s Student Recognition Program on April 30 in the Kinne Center.

Dr. Lois Becker, JU’s senior vice president for academic affairs, joined other campus leaders in celebrating the scholastic achievements and distinguished leadership qualities of TRiO Student Support Services (TRiO SSS) program’s top participants and their support team.

The TRiO SSS program’s roster is a collection of talented, persistent and determined student leaders. Thus the leadership awards were based on ethical characteristics that transcend political, religious and culturally biased perspectives. The active participants were recognized by Director Cherry Stallworth and her staff for positively impacting other students in academic and social arenas throughout the campus community.
