Jane Longley-Cook Awards Endowment On March 11, 2003 we lost a dear member of our NAADA family, Jane B.
Longley-Cook after a brief struggle with cancer. Jane gave many hours of
dedicated, cheerful service to NAADA, serving on the Board of Directors
and playing a lead role in establishing the NAADA Awards program. The
NAADA Awards Program annually recognizes individuals in the following
areas: Outstanding Volunteer, Professional Achievement, Distinguished
Service, Ruby C. McSwain Outstanding Philanthropic Achievement Award and
Front Line Award. With matching support from Bob Bickford the NAADA
Awards Program Endowment was established.
Jane was ever present at
our Annual Conferences and always part of our programs and activities –
helping, smiling and serving. Jane earned her undergraduate degree from
Cornell University, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Ithaca
in 1969. For more than 17 years, Jane was a key volunteer for the Alumni
Affairs Office at Cornell University. She was a special friend to many
of us and we will miss her wisdom and spirit.
In honor of Jane’s
important role with NAADA and her years of service, the NAADA Board of
Directors has established a new award – the Jane Longley-Cook Memorial
NAADA Volunteer Service Award. This award will be given to an individual
who has provided outstanding volunteer service to both their home
institution and NAADA, as Jane did.
Jane deeply believed in the
goals and mission of both NAADA and our land-grant colleges of
agriculture. We are grateful to have this opportunity to forever
recognize Jane’s many contributions to NAADA. An endowment fund began in
2003 that is used to support the NAADA awards program.
Please help us continue to tradition of our individual achievement awards program in Jane’s honor!
