Senior Story 2022: Building Community
Sep 5, 2022

Name: Jeanine Dorrough

Hometown: Bandura, TX

Major: Business & English 

Notable UD Memories/Achievements: Receiving the Ann Heller Maberry Award; creating and coordinating the First-Generation College Student Small Group Program and seeing its positive impact; meeting her best friend at freshman orientation and rooming with her for three years.

Future Plans: Serving as project coordinator for IN2 Innovation in Addison, Texas, then building a career in novel publishing as an editor or a literary agent.

First-generation college graduate Jeanine Dorrough, BA ’22, hadn’t even planned on going to college — then she received a postcard from UD in the mail and felt pulled to apply. Dorrough is particularly grateful to Director of Academic Success and Seven Arts of Language Matthew Spring, PhD ’15: “Soon after meeting Dr. Spring, he became one of my biggest role models. He is kind, generous, and shows genuine care to anyone he meets. He presented me with numerous opportunities to build and develop my small group program. It is thanks to Dr. Spring that I was able to embrace the UD community as well as contribute to it.” She added, “I will always be grateful for the way that UD cultivated my mind. It taught me how to think independently and presented me with numerous opportunities to guide and help others in the UD community.”
