Senior Kathleen Perry Wins Service Award

Senior Kathleen Perry has won the 2013 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award for her outstanding commitment to the Durham community.

During her time at Duke, Perry has made room in her academic schedule to mentor at-risk youth and assist low-income and uninsured patients through programs such as Reality Ministries and the Samaritan Health Clinic.

The award is sponsored by the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation to perpetuate the characteristics of integrity and service exemplified by Sullivan, a New York lawyer and philanthropist who died in 1887.

Perry, a senior graduating with a degree in religion and a certificate in global health, received her award at the Student Leadership and Service Awards program on April 17.
