AAWGT: Making a difference in our community!
Founders’ Award 2009 - Tara Clifford
It was with great pleasure that prior recipients Sharon Stewart (2007) and Bronwyn Belling (2008) announced at the December meeting that the 2009 Founders’ Award recipient is Tara Balfe Clifford. Tara’s service to AAWGT is extraordinary: one of our original founding members, she has single-handedly recruited more members than any other member, helped launch the Grants Committee and has generously shared her expertise and wisdom, gathered in part from the Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle. Tara also designed and implemented the first Post Grants Evaluation Committee, has graciously served as an AAWGT goodwill ambassador par excellence and has performed admirably as meeting hostess and guest photographer.
Tara Clifford has been a model of resourcefulness, leadership, and enthusiasm—the qualities that have helped to make AAWGT what it is today. And she has done all of this with a most humble and generous spirit.
