Mary Anne Flournoy Receives Annual Award from UCM

Rural Action congratulates Mary Anne Flournoy, our former board chair, on being honored with a Social Justice Award by United Campus Ministry (UCM) for 2009. Since 1983, the UCM Board of Directors has recognized individuals and organizations in the community for their activism and efforts to promote peace and justice. Mary Anne is being specifically recognized “for her ongoing efforts to promote social justice in our community through her exemplary support of and participation in organizations including the Athens Foundation Women's Fund, Rural Action, Athens A.M. Rotary, the Sugar Bush Foundation, and the Zienzele Foundation.” UCM will host its annual award ceremony on Monday, April 6 at 6:00 PM in Baker Ballroom B at Ohio University.

We at Rural Action would like to thank Mary Anne for her tireless efforts on our behalf – as well as many other organizations in our region.

Her activism is an example to all.
