MVA award Kathy G and Monica

  At its annual retreat May 15 & 16, the Kateri Tekakwitha Fund gave its first annual Most Valuable Angel award to Kathy Green, member of the Board of Director in charge of development.  Kathy has worked untiringly over the year to raise funds to support the Kateri Tekakwitha Fund's work in Guatemala to provide scholarships for young indigenous women. The young women are able to better their lives through this education.  It not only affects their lives, but also the lives of the next generation when they marry and teach their own children.  
   The Fund also provides services for
the older women involved in Mission: Guatemala whose crafts they have been selling for more than 12 years.  Candalaria Sut, KT's staff in Guatemala facilitates needs assessments with the groups and helps the womne find ways to fill the needs that they identify.
    As well as Kathy, the Kateri Tekakwitha Fund recognized Monica Olsen, a founding Board member, whi is leaving the Board of Directors this year.  
 Monica has been a strong supporter of the scholarship program and will continue to serve on the Fund's scholarship committee where her knowledge of the Fund will be a great asset.
