Meet Robin Jennings - 2011 Woman of Distinction

Robin Jennings has dedicated herself to enriching the lives of countless people through the arts and teaching. Jennings was nominated in 1978 as Outstanding Young Educator in the State of Alabama. After 12 years of teaching, she retired to become a stay-at-home mom and community volunteer. She supports Stop Child Abuse and Neglect, Chi Ho Children’s Home, Early Works Museum and HHF Angels for Children.

Jennings serves organizations such as the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, Women’s Guild of the Huntsville Museum of Art, Gothic Guild, Broadway Theater League, Fantasy Playhouse, Panoply of the Arts and Junior League of Huntsville, where she was Sustainer of the Year in 1998. She is also a banjo player in the Junior League Rainbow Rhythm Band.

She received Bachelor of Arts degrees in both education and sociology from The University of Alabama.

Her passion for teaching and promoting social graces inspired her to create the Manners Are Magic program. “I feel that good manners reflect a person’s character and confidence, two of the Girl Scout principles,” said Jennings.

Jennings will be recognized at the North Alabama Women of Distinction Luncheon on April 27. For more information, visit
