Community Involvement

"Those devoted and dedicated individuals who touch lives and minds"

During the celebratory event about Jackson’s life held in July 2014, friends, family, and former students recalled the active social life Jackson led. “She was known as a community supporter with a special interest in the health of Lancaster City and [the] causes that could advance African Americans.”
