Greenwell Foundation Equestrian Director Awarded Honorary Paul Harris Fellow Rotary Community Heroes Award for Work During Pandemic
Jenn Emmart, Greenwell Foundation’s Equestrian Director received the highest honor a non-Rotarian can receive, the Rotary Community Heroes Award named for Paul Harris, Rotary’s Founder.
Jenn was nominated by Lisa Blackwell, District 7620 President and a member of Greenwell Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Blackwell made the nomination, she said, because of the extraordinary work Jenn has done throughout the pandemic to care for Greenwell’s herd of horses, and all their animals, and for continuing important Greenwell Programs that serve adults and children with and without disabilities at Greenwell State Park.
Emmart and her staff have served the St. Mary’s County community by continuing to offer the therapeutic programming – riding lessons, trail rides, Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) — that our neighbors have needed so much during these very difficult times. A highpoint of service was when Jenn and Greenwell Executive Director Jolanda Campbell brought ponies to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home for a day-long visit with residents.
