Jennifer Herskowitz ’88 Point of Light Award

As this year’s distinguished class of Cornell Tradition fellows prepares to depart from Cornell, we remind them that the honor of the fellowship and their dedication to service is a lifetime commitment.  By leading with their hands, hearts and minds, our graduates reinforce our trust in the future as well as our belief in the inherent goodness of humanity.  It is this giving spirit and commitment to service that inspired President George H.W. Bush to name our program a Daily Point of Light in 2000.

One Cornell Tradition student will be selected to receive the Jennifer Herskowitz ’88 Point of Light Award.  This award is named after a Cornell Tradition alumna who espoused the noble ideals of a Tradition fellow before premature passing on May 17, 2003.  Jennifer’s passion for and tremendous devotion to Cornell, which was fostered as a student and continued as an alum, shaped her life as well as the lives of those who were touched by her joyful spirit.  The award will be presented to a graduating senior who demonstrates dedication and service to others, and reflects the mission of the Cornell Tradition

Let the light of her love and spirit shine on and inspire those named below to follow in her footsteps.
