LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2003) -- On Thursday, Sept. 18, the University of Kentucky, in conjunction with First Link of the Bluegrass, will host the third annual UK Volunteer Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the UK Student Center Grand Ballroom.

The event was begun to honor the university for receiving the Harry S. Truman Foundation Honor Institution Award for exemplary participation in the Truman Scholarship program. During its 20-year participation in the program, UK has had 11 students named Truman Scholars.

More than 80 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 types of programs available to them and the work that is needed of volunteers.

“This is an incredible way to give back to the community we live in,” said UK student and event coordinator Jean Ellen Hiter. “We hope that the university community – students, faculty, staff and alumni – will participate.”
