WKU student receives national nonprofit internship award

JaNeé Lamb, a Social Work major in the WKU Nonprofit Administration minor, was recently selected to receive a $4,500 award from the Next Generation Nonprofit Leaders Program (NextGen), an initiative funded by a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

A panel of national nonprofit leaders selected Lamb from among students at Nonprofit Leadership Alliance affiliated colleges and universities nationwide.

Lamb, a senior from Elizabethtown, will complete her internship this semester with the Bellewood Home for Children, a nonprofit agency caring for abused and homeless youth and families in Kentucky.
