Jenny Rhodes’ Impact on Chesapeake College
“Jenny was invaluable to me during the development of the Agriculture Program, acting as a sounding board and providing ideas for course activities and program objectives. She brainstormed means for spreading the word about the program and helped me make connections with local organizations and guest speakers. Jenny’s support of the Agriculture Program at Chesapeake College will help ensure the continued prosperity of agriculture on the Eastern Shore.” – Nicole Fiorellino, Ph.D., Chesapeake College Agriculture Program Coordinator and Instructor

The Jenny Rhodes Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to any Eastern Shore resident who is enrolled in the Chesapeake College Agriculture Program.
