State Senate salutes Lincoln University president

06/19/2013 08:41PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print, News, Schools



Dr. Robert R. Jennings, president of The Lincoln University, was recently recognized by the Pennsylvania State Senate for receiving the Women’s League for Minority Education’s 2013 Educational Service Award.

The citation recognizing the Women’s League award, which honored Jennings’ leadership in spearheading the establishment of an urban satellite campus of The Lincoln University in Coatesville, was issued on May 22 and sponsored by State Sen. Andrew E. Dinniman and Senate Majority Leader Sen. Dominic Pileggi.

“I was honored that the Women’s League would single me out for this honor, but having Senator Dinniman and Senator Pileggi recognize me before the Pennsylvania Senate is an even higher honor for which I will forever be grateful,” Jennings said.

The Women’s League for Minority Education is a local, non-profit service organization, organized in 1978 by ten women from Chester County. Its purpose is to enhance the opportunities for minorities to receive higher education.

“I was proud to bring this award to the attention of the Senate,” wrote Sen. Dinniman in a congratulatory letter to Dr. Jennings. “Thank you for your exemplary service to our community.”
