LEAD Award Deadline Aug. 1

The Kentucky League of Cities is accepting nominations for the 2022 “Leadership Enrichment And Development” (LEAD) Award.

The recognition is for Kentucky mayors whose leadership demonstrates a passion for local public service and a commitment to lifelong learning. The LEAD Award is specifically designed to benefit mayors from cities with a limited education/training budget. 

The award was named to honor the late Ann Deatherage, a lifelong public servant who served as councilmember and mayor of the City of Carrollton. After her passing in February 2020, her family wished to endow an award through KLC to honor her legacy, and KLC established the Mayor Ann C. Deatherage LEAD Award.

LEAD Award nominates are due by August 1, 2022.
