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

 

Oct. 3, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- On Tuesday, Oct. 8, the University of Kentucky, in partnership with First-Link of the Bluegrass, will host the second annual UK Volunteer Fair from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the UK Student Center Grand Ballroom.

The event began last January in honor of the University winning the Harry S. Truman Foundation Honor Institution Award for exemplary participation in the Truman Scholarship program. UK has had 11 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 fair in an effort to show students, faculty, staff and alumni the kinds of programs available to them and the work that is needed of volunteers.

“We hope everyone at UK - students, faculty and staff - will participate and support UK's effort to encourage campus volunteerism,” said fair coordinator Elizabeth Hait, assistant director of student activities.
