Congratulations to Keep Akron Beautiful President & CEO Paula Davis, who won the Sue Smith Professional Leadership Award at the Keep America Beautiful National Conference in Washington DC.
The Sue Smith award is named after the recently retired Director of Education and Affiliate Trainer for Keep America Beautiful. It honors Executive Directors of affiliates who have built and sustained a local or state affiliate program with exceptional success.
The award also came with a personal congratulations from the Keep America Beautiful President, Matt McKenna, and a $500 check to add to Keep Akron Beautiful programming.
Those who have worked with Paula or sought out Paula’s expertise about new start-ups have received nothing but the best in direction and help, and we are sure they are as proud of her as her staff is.
The Mayor’s office will be sending out a formal press release about this win, but we wanted to tell our readers first.
