Volunteer Spotlight: Terry Jenkins
What is your most memorable volunteer experience at Finley?
The people I work with are great and the people we help are so grateful for our assistance. Also, I enjoy talking to people my own age.
What do you find most rewarding about your volunteer assignment?
When I leave after my three-hour stint, I feel really good about myself. This is a place where the people coming in really want our help. I enjoy giving back to our community.
Who or what motivates you to volunteer?
I have lived in Dubuque for 48 years and had a great life, job, and friends. Most of all my family motivates me. My wife and I really treasure our time with the grandchildren.
What do you do outside of volunteering at Finley (career, hobbies, interests, etc?)
I am a supporter of both the Dubuque Fighting Saints and the Chicago Cubs. I still teach astronomy part time at NICC. Also, I am a big Iowa Hawkeye fan as I have a PhD from Iowa in Math and Science education.
