Jan. 17, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The University of Kentucky will host its first UK Volunteer Fair on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22, in the UK Student Center ballrooms.

The event is in honor of the university's recent winning of the Harry S. Truman Foundation Honor Institution Award for exemplary participation in the Truman Scholarship program.

UK has had nine students named as Truman Scholars, during its 20-year participation in the program, which is based on public service and scholarship.

More than 65 community and campus service and arts/cultural organizations will take part in the Jan. 22 fair, in an effort to show students the kinds of programs available to them and the work that is needed of volunteers.

A panel discussion with UK Truman Scholars and Truman Foundation Executive Secretary Louis Blair will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Jan. 22 in the William T. Young Library Auditorium. Scholars Laura Neack (1980), Melody Flowers (1998), Anthony Jones (1999), Monica Grant (1999) and Jay Varelles (2001) will talk about their volunteering and Truman experiences.
