Kay Blanchard 2021 Star Award Winner
Congratulations to Kay Blanchard, this year's recipient of the Star Award for the Minneapolis/St. Paul Chapter. Kay stepped out of her comfort zone and led our chapter through a very challenging year. Kay had never held a position on the board of any organization and while her tenure as President started out "normal", it quickly changed with the onset of the global pandemic and the world switched from working in office and in person meetings to virtual everything. Two months in, everything Kay faced was new and unchartered territory. Kay was able to quickly switch gears and continue to lead the Minneapolis/St. Pau Chapter through these difficult circumstances, keeping us connected and running every meeting with a smile and sense of humor. Kay may have even surprised herself and when her year was done, she was proud of what she accomplished.
