Trident Literacy Association Seeks Nominations for Annual Founder’s Awards
Trident Literacy Association (TLA) has announced a call for nominations for the 2021 Founder’s Awards. Nominations are being accepted now through January 22, 2021.
The Founder’s Award was inspired by Trident Literacy Association’s founder, Pat Gibson. Pat founded TLA to provide a pathway out of poverty for people and to make the community a better place for everyone. Founder’s Award honorees are women like Pat, who use their platform to elevate other women and our community through philanthropy, business, sports, education, or the arts.
TLA invites community members to nominate an extraordinary woman for this award. Email email@example.com with the name of the woman you are nominating and why she inspired you to nominate her.
On January 27, 2021, the TLA Board of Directors will announce eight honorees. In years past, TLA celebrated honorees at a signature luncheon. This year, TLA will host a series of four virtual events where honorees will receive their awards and discuss women’s roles in our community. The annual event is celebrated during International Women’s Month to honor our founder and all women worldwide, working towards equity for all. Event tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available by visiting www.tridentlit.org/
Past honorees include Dr. Mary Thornley, Dr. Maria Córdova Salinas, Jan Pearlstine Lipov, Lorraine Lutton, Molly Greene, Pat Gibson, Susan Pearlstine, Carolyn Hunter, Brenda Carter, Carolyn Murray, Dr. Deborah Williamson, Dot Scott, Dr. Giovanna de Luca, Jennet Robinson Alterman, Nathalie Dupree, Andrea Hazel, Colleen Condon, Katrina Fjording, The Honorable Lucille Whipper, Lydia Cotton, and PJ Browning.
