JEM Assistant Professor Elizabeth Hendrickson was featured in an article about online dating services and social media influences in a Valentine’s Day Tennessee Today article. Hendrickson says, “If you’re interested in using an online dating site, you should be equally interested in doing your due diligence about its benefits and pitfalls.” To read the full story, see http://tntoday.utk.edu/2014/02/12/valentine-expert-growing-popularity-online-dating/.
Bonnie Hufford, JEM instructor, recently received two awards from the American Cancer Society (ACS). On Feb. 6, she was awarded the American Cancer Society’s Mary Lasker Award. It is one of five inaugural Hope Awards given to outstanding ACS volunteers in the state of Tennessee, http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2014/feb/06/cancer-society-honors-five-with-hope-award/.
In Oct. 2013, Hufford received the St. George National Award along with 26 other individuals from across the country. The St. George award is the American Cancer Society’s most prestigious volunteer recognition for outstanding service to the community (see http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2013/oct/08/kudos-briefs-oct-8/?print=1).
“Bonnie Hufford is an inspiration to everyone she meets,” said Mike Wirth, dean of UT’s College of Communication and Information. “All of her colleagues at the University of Tennessee are very proud of the incredible volunteer work she continues to do for the American Cancer Society along with her outstanding work as a teacher and mentor. She gives true meaning to what it means to be a Volunteer!”
