Barbara Browning, director of the IUPUI Student Support Services program (SSS), received the Indiana TRIO LaVerta L. Terry Outstanding Service Award. The award is designed to recognize the contributions of a professional in a TRIO program who exhibits loyalty to the needs of TRIO students and serves above and beyond expectations.
Browning was nominated for the award by Roxanne Gregg, director of the IUPUI Upward Bound program. “IUPUI has been blessed to have a very successful TRIO SSS program for more than 20 years, and it has been directed only by Barbara Browning. Many students have received a college education because of her gentle but firm encouragement,” remarked Gregg after reflecting on Browning’s work.
