On June 28, 2012, Jenny was awarded the Jefferson Award by Channel 9 News and Marshfield Clinic. What an honor to be chosen for such a prestigious award, created by the amazing Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Robert Taft, Jr. and Samuel Beard.
The purpose of the Jefferson Award is to honor individuals for their achievements and contributions through public and community service in order to inspire and encourage others to get involved. To be categorized with outstanding individuals that Jenny looks up to such as Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong has been extremely humbling!
