J.L. Herskowitz Point of Light Award

The Jennifer Loren Herskowitz ’88 Cornell Tradition Point of Light award honors a senior Fellow who demonstrates the core values of The Cornell Tradition.  Cornell Tradition alumna Jennifer Loren Herskowitz '88, espoused these noble ideals as a dedicated Tradition fellow and an active and compassionate Tradition alumna, before her premature passing on May 17, 2003, following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.  Jennifer’s passion for and tremendous devotion to Cornell, which was fostered as a student and continued as an alum, shaped her life as well as the lives of those who were touched by her joyful spirit.

The positive power of an engaged mind, caring heart, and strong spirit that typifies Cornell Tradition Fellows like Jennifer, transcends the corporeal, and even after our passing, lives on, and will assert itself with ever-growing insistency. 

Students will be considered from Senior Recognition Nominations.
