Luttrell honored at Centre College
RELEASED: Mar. 15, 2001
DANVILLE, KY - Lindsey Luttrell of Frankfort has been honored as the Centre College March Volunteer of the Month for her work with the Adult Learning Center.
Luttrell first got involved with the Adult Learning Center through a Spanish class she took in the fall. One of the class requirements was to participate in community service. Since she is planning on a Spanish minor, she chose to be a tutor and help teach English as a second language. She enjoyed the experience so much that she is now teaches two nights a week at the center. Luttrell not only helps students with English, but also assists many who are working on GED's. She also helps teach communication skills by having conversation groups at the end of each session.
Luttrell, a freshmen, is unsure of her plans after graduation, but knows she would like to stay involved with volunteering. Luttrell said "volunteering at the center has shown me that I can make a difference in other's lives while doing something I thoroughly enjoy, and it has made me more involved with the Danville community. I have become friends with so many people that, otherwise, I never would have met."
Luttrell is also involved with Centre Christian Fellowship and is a student worker in the Student Life office.
She is the daughter of Dan and Patty Luttrell of Frankfort and is a graduate of Franklin County High School.
As Centre volunteer of the month, Luttrell will receive a framed certificate and be treated to lunch by a group of Centre employees.
The college launched the volunteer award program to show appreciation to the many students who provide service to the local community. Each year, around 60 percent of all Centre students become community volunteers. The college encourages voluntary service by planning a community service day each year for all first-year students. Ann Young serves the campus as director of volunteer service.
