WEST CHESTER – March 20, 2017 – State Senator Andy Dinniman was recently honored by the Alumni Association of Lincoln University, Chester County Chapter with the 2017 Distinguished Leadership Award.

Dinniman received the award in recognition of “the honor he brings to Lincoln University and his excellence in leadership, professional accomplishments and service to all Pennsylvanians” at the organization’s 4th Annual Jazz Awards Luncheon on Saturday, March 18 at the Mendenhall Inn.

In accepting the award, Dinniman, who serves as Governor Tom Wolf’s representative on the Board of Trustees of Lincoln University, spoke of the ongoing need to combat racism, bigotry, and discrimination by making quality higher education available, accessible, and affordable to all.

“I am honored and humbled to receive this recognition from the alumni of such a fine institution as Lincoln University – one that has shaped and influenced not only regional, but also pivotal national and international events,” Dinniman said. “Because when we teach and learn from our history and promote mutual understanding as a people, only then do we truly begin to understand ourselves as human beings. And as we move forward together, I have no doubt that Lincoln will continue to play a leading role not only among historically black colleges and universities, but also among all institutions of higher education.”

Dinniman, who serves as minority chair of the Senate Education Committee, continues to work to support vital investments in all levels of public education, make higher education more affordable and accessible for students and their families, advance opportunities for career, job and technical education for all, and stop excessive and expensive high-stakes standardized testing in schools.
