We are delighted that during LWV of Minnesota's Convention 2019 in late April, Paula Stein Clark was announced as the recipient of the Peggy Thompson Award. The award "focuses special recognition on League members who, by their sustained efforts, have been instrumental in strengthening and/or stabilizing their local LWVs and affecting their communities through their enthusiasm, motivation of others, and innovative ideas."
Paula is a co-founder of LWV of Dakota County and currently serves as our Spokesperson and Convener. Her role in forming and fostering the growth and vitality of LWV of Dakota County cannot be overstated. Her efforts have served as the enduring lifeblood of LWV of Dakota County since its inception, and the award is deeply deserved. Congratulations Paula!
