Meet UMass Medical School student, honoree of the Massachusetts Department of Education’s “29 Who Shine” award and Disaster Action Team member of Red Cross of Central Mass, Jennifer MacDonald!
On May 8, Jennifer was recognized for her contributions to the commonwealth by Governor Deval Patrick at the fourth annual recognition ceremony. Each honoree is a Massachusetts resident “who has made an outstanding civic contribution to the state and intends to remain in the commonwealth upon graduation.” Yes, we are claiming you for the foreseeable future Jennifer!
MacDonald began her residency at Clark University and her first volunteer experience was with our very own DAT team of which, she is still an active member of today. MacDonald is part of a team of volunteers who attend to needs of community members that have been affected by a house fire or other catastrophic disasters.
We are proud to have one of our own being recognized for her immeasurable help in the community!
