Community Service Award 

Karen Rice, administrator of Shepherd University’s Lifelong Learning Program, was this year’s recipient of SAIL’s fifth annual Community Service Award. SAIL President Marianne Alexander summarized Ms. Rice’s selection, saying, “Shepherd University’s Lifelong Learning Program, directed by Karen Rice, has been an outstanding example of community outreach by the University because it serves the entire adult learning community and region with its offering of stimulating courses, special speakers, travel opportunities and films.”


SAIL members were instrumental in the founding of the Lifelong Learning Program eleven years ago, and continue to be among the beneficiaries of the many and diverse educational opportunities it provides. SAILers are also actively involved in supporting this program through service on the Advisory Council, and by teaching and assisting in the classroom.
