Francine Chase, a student account counselor in the department of student account services, has been awarded the 2021 Rollins Wellbeing Champion Award.

Chase is recognized for her devotion to physical, mental, and nutritional well-being. She enjoys spending quality time with her family while staying active and can often be found biking or walking the West Orange Trail or paddleboarding on one of Orlando’s many lakes.

Chase begins each day with meditation and is also very conscious of how nutrition affects her physical and mental well-being. According to one colleague, “She is always willing to share her experiences and successes. She is quick to encourage anyone who wants to make a change for the better. She participates, encourages her team, and volunteers in the Rollins Wellbeing Committee events on campus.”

The Rollins Wellbeing Champion Award recognizes a Rollins faculty or staff member for being a role model in the area of well-being. This award is granted annually to the individual who is an ambassador of the Rollins Wellbeing Committee’s mission to create and promote a healthy campus community in which to live, learn, teach, work, and visit.

Chase will receive a personalized trophy and a $150 gift from the Rollins Wellbeing Committee.
