Phoenix recognizes Robinson
University of Phoenix has awarded alumna Courtney Robinson with a Community Service Award for her commitment to supporting students of all ages and several local community organizations. Robinson earned her master’s degree in adult education and training from University of Phoenix earlier this year and will be starting the graduate program for human resource management in January.
Robinson, who is also a counselor at the university’s Jackson campus, donates books to the local Boys & Girls Clubs each year, collects school supplies for students who are unable to fill their backpacks and shares her academic and professional experience with third- and fourth-grade students to inspire them and encourage them to focus on their studies. Additionally, Robinson knits scarves to donate to low-income students who don’t have warm winter clothing. In the last seven years, she has knitted more than 200 scarves.
Other organizations Robinson donates resources and time to are Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA), the Mississippi Food Network and Habitat for Humanity.
