Jackie Glace wins Woman of the Year

Each year, the Penn State Brandywine Commission for Women searches from classroom to office and everywhere in between, to find the year's most outstanding woman to name Woman of the Year. This year, the commission found not just one, but three. Jackie Glace, senior Schreyer Scholar, was one of two students awarded the honor of Woman of the Year.

"This young woman is an outstanding leader and a fantastic representative for Penn State Brandywine," Prof. Karrie Bowen, chair of the Penn State Brandywine Women's Commission, said of Glace, whose mouth dropped open at her seat as she realized she was the winner. "She is an exemplary student in every way possible. She is a Schreyer Honor student, she gives her time selflessly to help her community on both a local level, a regional level and a national level. She is honest, kind and loyal to all who know her--her teachers, her friends and the people she works with when she volunteers her summers with the Appalachia Service Project."
