Barbara Wallace, director of UC Clermont College’s College Success Program, has been honored with the President’s Call to Service Award. The national recognition acknowledges a minimum of 4,000 hours of volunteer service-both personally and professionally.
Humbled by the award, Wallace insists on deferring the credit, saying she’s tremendously gratified to have worked behind the scenes on a variety of projects through the years.
“The award recognizes the important work that’s been done by so many other people-because in my position, I build the program and match faculty and student resources with identified community needs,” she said. “I have to give credit to those who make it possible for me to do this work: the ongoing support of the administration, wonderful faculty, committed students, and our terrific community partners.”
