Nominations are being accepted for the 2010 Lorain County Women of Compassion award.
In 2007, The Community Foundation of Lorain County and Lorain County Community College joined forces to create a program that would honor and celebrate local women.
Now in it’s third year, the Women of Compassion Steering Committee seeks nominations for those who go above and beyond expectations in their daily lives to demonstrate compassion for and to inspire others, regardless of their area of work.
Past recipients include: Denice Anderson, Sister Mary Berigan, Lori Campana, Kathy Grueschow, Pamela Hakaim, Evann Heidersbach, Tracy Isenberg, Pastor Tina Kayatin, Alicia Phillips, Dawn Prokop, Emily Quayle, Basabi Ratnaparkhi, and Roslyn Valentine.
Recipients of the Women of Compassion Awards will be chosen by a committee of community volunteers based on the following selection criteria:
Must either live or work in Lorain County
Must have made a significant impact on the lives of others
Must have shown significant personal commitment to others
Must have demonstrated compassion to others and inspired them to do the same
