The APC’s own Carolyn McLaughlin, Events Coordinator, will receive the Jenny D. Thurston Memorial Award by the City of Atlanta for her contribution towards preservation in the City. Carolyn has been a member of the APC staff since 2010.
The Jenny Thurston Memorial Reward was established as a tribute to the first Executive Director of the Atlanta Urban Design Commission and to the preservation professionals who have substantially contributed to the field of historic preservation. The Thurston family funded the award, which is administered by the Georgia State University Foundation. A gift of $500 is awarded to an individual who exhibits the qualities of scholarship, leadership and dedication to preservation that Jenny Thurston possessed.
The 36th Annual Awards of Excellence Ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 16th, 2013.
