The Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) is pleased to announce that it has selected Kathleen L. Sabol to receive its annual Louis E. Waller Humanitarian Award. The award recognizes a local individual or organization devoted to the promotion of human welfare or the advancement of social reform as evidenced by humanitarian deeds in the community, whether local, national, or international. The inaugural award was presented to Louis E. Waller in 2008.
Her undergraduate time at the College of Wooster influenced her, especially the school’s emphasis on community service. She stayed after graduation to work for the college, overseeing student projects. But her most influential educational experience was her Masters from Harvard University in non-profit administration, where she studied social policy, funding and philanthropy.
For the past 21 years, she has been the Executive Director of the Washington County Bar Association and the Bar Foundation. She receives unconditional support from the lawyers to contribute time to the community.
