Her service has been recognized with a number of awards, including the National Jefferson Award for Greatest Public Service by Someone 35 Years or Younger.[1] Other awards include: Delta Kappa Gamma Educator's Award, Rescuer of Humanity from Project Love, Distinguished Woman of the Year from the American Association of University Women.
