Jennifer Scott Koontz, M.D., MPH, will receive the 2021 Outstanding Alumnus Award Sunday, Oct. 3, as part of Fall Festival.

Koontz, of Newton, has always had a heart for the community, which the past 18 months of pandemic have only emphasized.

The Outstanding Alumnus Award is given on the basis of character and citizenship, service to church/community or college, or other outstanding achievements, honors and recognition.

Except for briefly considering a missionary career as a first grader, Koontz has always wanted to be a doctor.
