Todd Jackson, BA’96, EMBA’08 to receive new Alumni Volunteer AwardJan. 17, 2014, 10:31 AM
As founders and co-chairs of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center Young Ambassadors, Jackson and his wife, EB, have helped raise $250,000 and award seven Discovery Grants to innovative cancer researchers. Those grants have generated an additional $2.4 million in research funding. He also helped increase volunteer and giving participation as president of the Owen Graduate School of Management Alumni Council and served as the fundraising chair for his fifth-year Reunion.
The Alumni Volunteer Award honors an alumni volunteer with a significant pattern of volunteer service to the university that has positively represented the university and its mission. This award and the Young Alumni Professional Achievement Award were recently created by the Vanderbilt Alumni Association Board of Directors to celebrate alumni accomplishments.
Jackson will receive the award during a ceremony recognizing all alumni award recipients.
