The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Advisory Board presented its 12th Service to Community Award to Dr. Nancy Grove, Pitt-Johnstown professor emeritus and director of School of Nursing, at its spring meeting. Dr. Grove also received a $250 cash prize from the Advisory Board.
This award was established to recognize students, faculty and staff who have actively contributed to the quality of life in our region.
The Public Affairs Committee of the Advisory Board members evaluated nominees based on established criteria, including volunteerism and service that has significant impact or enduring effect.
In presenting the award, Pitt-Johnstown Advisory Board Chairperson E. Jeanne Gleason commented, “Dr. Grove’s passion for helping others has led to active involvement in areas including health care, human services, and education where she has offered her time, expertise, and support. She truly represents the model of service that this award recognizes.”
Dr. Grove was recognized for her involvement with the United Cerebral Palsy (UCP). She has been an active volunteer member of the board of directors for UCP and Choices People Supporting People and a leader of the strategic planning and board development committees. During the UCP and Choices People Supporting People corporate reorganization she served as a crossover member on all five Boards in the new structure. She works closely with Board members and staff in supporting ways to improve the needs and services for individuals with disabilities in the community.
