Kenney received her award based on her commitment to peer education, leadership and talents as an advisor.
"I am grateful to advise such a great group of students who are so dedicated to improving the lives of their peers and enhancing the health and wellness of the Radford community," said Kenney, who is also a health educator for Student Counseling Services and Student Health Services. "Both at the conference and here on campus, they serve as wonderful role models for their peers and are strong ambassadors for RU. I hope their success will inspire others to get involved in the Peer Health Educators Club and other wellness initiatives on campus."
