The LaVerta L. Terry Outstanding Service Award is designed to recognize the contributions of a professional in a TRIO program. Nominees should exhibit those qualities of loyalty to the needs of TRIO students and to the programs which serve them ABOVE and BEYOND the levels expected from a mere career choice. The recipient should serve as a MODEL to others who work alongside them and as a standard by which all can measure their own effectiveness.
LaVerta Terry, retired director of the Indiana University Groups Program and Bloomington's 2006 Woman of the Year, talks about her experiences during the time of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
