The 2020 John D. Welty Award for Excellence in Community Service will be presented to Fresno State senior D’Aungillique Jackson. The award, which includes a $2,500 scholarship, is given each year to a student who exemplifies the commitment to service that Welty championed during his 22 years as president at Fresno State.

Inspired by her own initiative and deep investment in dismantling racism, Jackson, who is majoring in sociology, has dedicated over 350 hours of service to the community during the past academic year.

“As an organizer, community service has always been a passion of mine,” Jackson said. “In times of need it’s important that we come together to support one another, and this is something I will continue to practice. I’m so thankful and honored to have received this award.”
