Jacqueline Davis-Manigaulte ’72, a senior extension associate, director of community relations, and the family and youth development program leader for Cornell University Cooperative Extension-NYC, is the latest recipient of the Cornell New York State Hometown Alumni Award.


The celebratory community event, held May 8 at the First Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, brought together colleagues, family and friends of the Bronx native to recognize the longtime Brooklyn resident’s decades of work with youth and family programs. The afternoon was capped by a performance by MoJazz Dance, of which Davis-Manigaulte is a member.


The Cornell University New York State Hometown Alumni Award recognizes Cornell graduates who return to their home counties or regions to start or enhance a business or nonprofit, and who regularly volunteer and are making an impact in those communities. Davis-Manigaulte was the first award recipient from the New York City area.
