In just over a month, nonprofits from across the Commonwealth will arrive in Lexington to attend the Kentucky Nonprofit Leadership Forum, the statewide conference for nonprofit professionals. In addition to learning critical skills and information to help their organizations succeed, attendees have an additional opportunity – to help us celebrate this year’s recipients of our annual awards!
I am thrilled to announce this year’s award recipients:
- Life Learning Center of Covington, selected as recipient of the Innovative Nonprofit Award for their Foundations for a Better Life program — a trademarked, 16-week curriculum which provides the tools and resources needed by individuals seeking long-term stability and a better way to live.
- Kevin Connelly, executive director of the Center for Nonprofit Excellence in Louisville, was selected as the recipient of the Energy Insurance Agency and Travelers Insurance Distinguished Nonprofit Leadership Award. Kevin, the organization’s first executive director, has served for 15 years and was selected for spearheading CNPE’s growth and community building efforts.
- Glenn Leveridge, board member of Hindman Settlement School, was selected as the recipient of the Outstanding Board Leadership Award. Glenn was recognized for his outstanding service and leadership, especially during a period of transition at Hindman Settlement School.
I sincerely hope to see you at the Forum on October 28-29 and if you can’t join us for both days, please do plan to purchase an Awards Luncheon ticket for October 29 to help us recognize these outstanding recipients and celebrate our sector. See you soon!
