The Boone Conservancy's Executive Director receives* John Russell Groves Citizens Laureate Award
The Boone Conservancy's Executive Director was selected by AIA Kentucky to receive the John Russell Groves Citizens Laureate Award. The award is given to "honor an individual and advocate who has consistently supported and encouraged the values of quality architecture in their community through leadership, service and dedication to a better living environment." The award recognizes individuals whose efforts reinforce AIA Kentucky's mission to promote good design, quality architecture and/or vibrant communities in Kentucky. Receiving the award is the culmination of The Boone Conservancy's collaboration with AIA Northern Kentucky Chapter in the "Pit to Park" project undertaken as the chapter's AIA 150 legacy project. The Award was presented at the AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention at a ceremony at The Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati on October 2, 2009.
