Congratulations to PANV's co-founder and immediate past-President, Kathi P. Ingram, RP, for receiving NFPA's 2021 Outstanding Local Leader award at the annual convention awards ceremony held earlier today. NFPA’s Outstanding Local Leader Award recognizes an individual NFPA member for their outstanding leadership contributions to the their local association and positive influence in the paralegal profession; their ability to motivate others to work toward establishing and carrying out professional goals; and recognition by the legal community as a committed professional dedicated to the advancement of the paralegal profession. Kathi is all of that and more. Wish we could have all been together to see your face when they called your name, but seeing you recognized in front of so many of your peers and good friends across the country, even if it was virtual, was so very special.
