Krista Grimm was awarded the 2014 Art Palleon Lake Michigan Advocacy Award at the LWVLMR annual meeting in Traverse City, Michigan, on October 4. The award was inaugurated in 2013 in honor of longtime member and Lake Michigan advocate Art Palleon.
President Henrietta Saunders presented Grimm with a lovely photograph of a winter scene from Lake Michigan's eastern shore for her work on the Stormwater from the Ground Up education project. The picture was taken by Mary Lee Orr, who won the Palleon award in 2013.
In accepting the award, Grimm said, "This is especially meaningful because it has Art's name on it."
