Michele Endries, this year’s recipient, has dedicated many hours of her time volunteering for this chapter. She completed a total of 6 years of service on the chapter board before stepping down in 2020.
She received multiple nominations for this award. They contained support and praise for Michele's contributions to this chapter over the years.
Here is what members said in support of Michele's nomination:
“She is a constant advocate for women’s golf and opportunities for women in general. Whether it is chairing an event or serving on a committee, she has made our events special from securing venues, good deals on catering and prizes for events."
"She has mentored others so they gain confidence to chair future events. She has served our chapter as Membership Director, Marketing Director and League Captain at various leagues. She has chaired and co-chaired many events and also served on committees for others".
"She is a warm , welcoming soul, who brings the fun. She is quick with a smile and a laugh, and that warmth and generosity of spirit makes her an asset to this chapter and the many friends she has made along the way.”
“Early in her membership, she cared enough to raise her hand and share her opinions about how leagues were being managed. We asked for her help to make things better, and she has been an active volunteer ever since, making a significant, positive impact on our chapter. "
"Always ready to pitch in where needed, always engaging our new and existing members, she is a part of the reason our chapter is, and has been so strong and enduring."
The Founders Award committee, made up of previous recipients, concurred with these statements whole heartedly and we are proud and honored to present the 2021 award to such a deserving recipient as Michele.
We plan to honor Michele and present her with the Founders Award trophy at the Spring Kick-off, which will be held in March or April of 2022. Plan to be there!!
