The Blanche W. Grady Community Service Award honors the late Blanche Grady and recognizes others like her who work diligently, without a lot of recognition, to make our community a better place in which to live. The Scott M. Niswonger Family created the award with the Laughlin Health Care Foundation to show appreciation for Mrs. Grady and her volunteer spirit and honor Mr. Niswonger’s mother, the late Sharon Niswonger.
The recipient of this prestigious award will be announced at a dinner in November at the General Morgan Inn.
Past recipients of the Blanche W. Grady Community Service Award are: David Andrew, Judy Bettis, Rev. Frankie Isley, Tony Williams, Terry Bellamy, Bruce Saint Laurent, Richard and Richie McKinney, Barbara Barner, Sandra Ricker, Fran Gregory, Bettie Copp, and Caroline and Rob Russell. Deceased recipients are Adelle Haines, Ann Huntsman, Della Mae Malone, Frances Taylor, Tyre Culbertson, Fannie R. Henderson, and Jerlee Ottinger.
