“The LMU Women of Service Mission and Purpose: Encouraging Women to Live with Passion While Serving Others! Although the word service seems self-explanatory, sometimes it is difficult to define. Service is a language that everyone speaks, but according to our personalities, it can mean many things. LMU’s Women of Service hopes to offer avenues for women to express their passion for service” said Cindy Whitt, vice president for university advancement and member of the LMU Women of Service.

Established in 2011, the LMU Women of Service is open to all women who want to help students at Lincoln Memorial University. By living as an example of service, WOS members teach LMU students about the incredibly important mission of service to humanity. With proceeds from activities like the WOS Christmas Festival and the upcoming Service, Sweets & Style for Scholarships fashion show, WOS funds student scholarships, provides family aid and cultural enrichment opportunities to LMU students.
